Populations of white rhinos are dangerously close to reaching that tipping point "between this year and 2016" where at the current rate of poaching, deaths of rhinos may outstrip births for the first time, warns Dr Mike Knight, the chairman of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature's African Rhino Specialist Group.
"I struggle to sleep thinking about it," he reveals.
"While it appears counter-intuitive, the removal of the odd surplus male... can actually enhance overall metapopulation growth rates and further genetic conservation," says Dr Mike Knight, the chairman of the IUCN's African Rhino Specialist Group.
Knight ascribes the outcry to "naivety from a disjointed" public in the US and Europe.
IOL : Klipspringers ready to make a return, 20 May 2004 [cached]
In a report in November that year on a proposed reintroduction strategy, South Africa National Parks' manager of scientific services, Mike Knight, said the record supported the view that klipspringers had occurred throughout the Peninsula.
Knight said klipspringers were particularly vulnerable, particularly when they moved away from refuges on rocky outcrops.
Knight suggested Cape Point and the northern and western slopes of Table Mountain and upper tables offer the best potential sites.
The suitable areas of Table Mountain could carry a maximum of 35 and 40 klipspringer territories, Knight suggested.

Give me my horn back,'" said Michael H. Knight, chairman of the African Rhino Specialist Group of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature's Species Survival Commission.
A meeting of the group in February reported there might, possibly, be one white rhino left in Mozambique and no black rhinos at all, Knight said.
Knight said rhinos first became extinct in Mozambique around the turn of the last century, in the age of the big white hunters, when the animals also nearly disappeared in South Africa, which is now home to 90 percent of Africa's estimated 20,000 white rhinos and 4,880 black rhinos.
Knight said South African officials are even discussing rebuilding their fence with Mozambique.
