Dear Friend of the Wilderness Foundation Africa. We are bombarded on an almost daily basis by the alarming statistics regarding the rhino poaching crises. The Wilderness Foundation Forever Wild Rhino Protection Initiative has taken groundbreaking steps in the struggle to protect these majestic creatures and the wild places in which they roam.
The Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) notes the judgment handed down on the 26th November in the High Court of South Africa, Pretoria, which effectively lifts the 2009 moratorium on the domestic trade of rhino horn.
In a historic accord to save Africa's elephants from out-of-control poaching, President Barack Obama and President Xi Jinping agreed Friday to work together and halt commercial ivory sales in the United States and China.
WFA, through its Forever Wild Rhino Protection Initiative, is pleased to announce that it will be further expanding its operations in Vietnam in order to address the demand for rhino horn in this key user country.
