Plans to curb rhino poaching yielding positive results

Efforts aimed at curbing rhino poaching have started yielding positive results. Water and Environmental Affairs Minister, Edna Molewa, has told a workshop in the Kruger National Park that the return to South Africa of a consignment of 33 rhino horns and a large number of elephant ivory products worth an estimated R24 million from Hong Kong was a major breakthrough.

“We are also going to sign some of the remaining agreements with Mozambique, Vietnam, Thailand and several other countries that have been identified. Indeed we are confident that with those countries where there have already been signatures attached like the Hong Kong as part of China, there are already some success stories that we can point at, just about a week ago we got a consignment back in South Africa worth R24 million which was confiscated by Hong Kong administration,” says Molewa.
