SA, Mozambique to sign MoU on rhino poaching
About 277 rhinos have been killed in South Africa since the beginning of the year. This, while awareness initiatives continue unabated.
Most of the rhino poached this year were from the Kruger National Park.
SANParks says the agreement with neighbouring Mozambique will allow South African rangers to pursue poachers even if they cross the border. "Our Minister of Environmental Affairs and her Mozambican counterpart will actually be signing a MoU which will ensure that measures which we are putting on this side of the fence in South Africa are also put in Mozambique," says SANParks Rey Thakhuli.
Speaking at the end of a Rhino Trade Conference in Pretoria on Thursday, OSCAP director Allison Thomson affirmed their stand against rhino poaching.
Thomson says they are working hard, both domestically and internationally, to put a stop to any proposals to legalise rhino horn trade. Thomson said the conference ended on a positive note with participants resolving to ensure that all South Africans were made aware of the risks associated with legalising rhino horn trade.
