TRADE OF RHINO HORN, GOING FORWARD. The recent Constitutional Court dismissal of the Department of Environment’s appeal to keep the ban to trade in rhino horn in place, has become a very controversial subject. The South African government is struggling with a rhino poaching crisis and their attempt to achieve a solution has only seemed to worsen the crisis.
Southern African Fight for Rhino (SAFFR) is an organisation based in South Africa, and has been very active, collectively in challenging the rising demand of all animal products, whether domestic or wild. On this basis, we would like to thank the Chinese government for reinstating the ban on lion, tiger and rhino parts in China.
