A least 1,338 rhinos were killed across Africa in 2015, according to a deep analysis compiled by International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Species Survival Commission's African Rhino Specialist Group (AfRSG). « One of the most important things that the countries in Africa must realize it is that the wildlife crime and the poaching of Rhinos is not a wildlife crime, it's an economic crime, » says Mike Knight, Chair of IUCN's Africa Rhino Specialist Group ( AfRSG).« Because it's been organized by transnational organised crime networks, » he adds.
South East Asia is criticized for this current crisis which is the highest. Indeed, since 2008, poachers have killed at least 5, 5,940 African rhinos, noted the report. In 2015, South Africa lost around US$25 million from the Rhinos killed illegally, according to the report. However, in countries such as Kenya, poaching has declined, for the first time since 2008. For Mr Knight, increasing law enforcement and solidarity between countries can eliminate illegal hunting. We can't solve this issue nationally. We have to do it through cooperation, internationally, particulary, regionally. We have to make sure that our governments are talking to each other, » he urges.

“Well-organized and well-funded crime syndicates are continuing to feed the growing black market with rhino horn,� says Mike Knight, Chairman of the IUCN SSC African Rhino Specialist Group, a group of rhino experts within IUCN’s Species Survival Commission. “Over the past few years, consumer use of rhino horn has shifted from traditional Asian medicine practices to new uses, such as to convey status.
