High-tech poachers threaten fight to save rhinos
A booming black-market demand for rhinoceros horns is driving a lucrative new wave of high-tech poaching that threatens the fight to save the world's rhino populations from extinction

JOHANNESBURG—A booming black-market demand for rhinoceros horns is driving a lucrative new wave of high-tech poaching that threatens the fight to save the world's rhino populations from extinction.

The epicenter of the crisis is South Africa, which has lost nearly one rhinoceros a day to poaching this year.

But conservationists fear the problem could spill over into other regions, pushed by a surge in demand for rhino horn in Asia, notably in Vietnam, where it is used as a traditional medicine and sells for tens of thousands of dollars per horn.

South Africa, which is home to more than 70 percent of the world's remaining rhinos, has lost 316 of the animals to poaching this year, up from 122 last year, and a jump from less than 10 each year two decades ago, according to Joseph Okori, African rhino coordinator for the World Wildlife Fund.

"It has been a disastrous year for rhino conservation," Okori told AFP.

He blamed the surge in poaching on "well-organized syndicates" that use helicopters, night-vision equipment, veterinary tranquilizers and silencers to hunt their prey at night.

"The criminal syndicates in South Africa operate on very high tech. They are very well-coordinated," Okori said. "This is not normal poaching."

Conservationists estimate there are around 25,000 rhinos left globally, with three species in Asia and two in Africa.

Asia's rhino populations have already been pushed to the brink of extinction by hunting and deforestation. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) lists both Javan and Sumatran rhinos as critically endangered and Indian rhinos as vulnerable to extinction.

In Africa, conservationists have fought to restore the continent's black and white rhino species, both decimated by hunting in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Thanks to the large-scale creation of national parks and efforts to combat poaching, the southern white rhino, once thought to be extinct, now numbers 17,500 and growing.

Black rhino numbers are also rising and stand at 4,200 – though this is a fraction of the hundreds of thousands thought to have roamed the continent in 1900, the IUCN says.

But that resurgence now faces a setback as a new wave of poaching hits the continent.

While the rhino horn trade is banned under the 175-member Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES), the use of rhino horn in Asian traditional medicine has continued to feed demand. In one recent case, a rhino horn sold for $70,000, according to CITES.

The wildlife monitoring group Traffic, which has studied the medicinal use of rhino horn powder, says the substance is used as a fever-reducer in traditional Chinese medicine.

More recently, researchers say, a belief that rhino horn can cure cancer has emerged in Vietnam.

Tom Milliken, Traffic's director for east and southern Africa, said that belief – together with Vietnam's recent economic boom – is helping drive the current surge in poaching.

"Vietnam suddenly emerged in the mid-2000s as a new market," he told AFP.

"In my view it is the largest rhino horn market in the world today and really stands behind this trade."

Milliken led a delegation of South African officials to Vietnam in October to meet with his contemporaries there on measures to curb the trade, but no agreements have been reached.

South African officials are, meanwhile, targeting the supply side.

The government launched a National Wildlife Crime Investigation Unit in October to crack down on poachers.

Parks and game reserves have also begun a range of inventive anti-poaching programs, including dying the horns, tracking them with microchips and cutting them off before poachers can get to them.

But Milliken fears the crackdown in South Africa will only displace the problem to other regions.

"That's the whole history of the rhino horn trade to Asia," Milliken said.

"There's unlimited consumer demand driving this, and if it's not contained at source, it historically has swept from one country to another."



FARAH PROVINCE, Afghanistan -- As Farah Agriculture and Veterinary Science High School and Institute Deputy Director, Fazal Ahmad Shirzi looks on, Darren Richardson, the United States Department of Agriculture Advisor for the Farah Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT), teaches a follow-up lesson to a surveying class he began in October, 2009, with 27 institute students, Jan. 12, 2010, Farah, Afghanistan. To begin the session, Richardson reviewed how to set up the surveying equipment before explaining how to analyze the rod readings collected last October. Once the students and faculty successfully learned how to use the surveying level, tripod and rod, the equipment was donated to the institute by the USDA.
