Dr Mike Knight - Head: Planning & Development
As manager of the Park Planning & Development unit, he is responsible for ensuring that science informs as best a possible the thinking and direction in planning the expansion and development of our national park system, in the terrestrial and marine environments. This is informed by state of the art GIS-based conservation planning. This is translated into actual park expansion through acquisition and contractual inclusion, both coordinated by the office. The expansion of SANParks marine components is a focal area of the unit. He is also responsible for the management grant funding for numerous park expansion/development projects. In addition the office is responsible for the delivery of park management plans, and the state of biodiversity reporting system. He also chairs the SADC Rhino Management Group and represent South Africa on the IUCN SSC African Rhino Specialist Group.

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.
