How to stop rhino from extinction

  1. Legalize international trade of the rhino horn The theory is supported by the idea of farming rhinos and eventually harvest their horns.
  2. Safe rhino dehorning It’s been said that if done under controlled conditions, the rhino’s horn could be safely removed without harming the animal. The only problem here is that it has a negative effect on the animal’s behaviour and on the male rhino’s ability to mate.
  3. Educating people Education around the world is another way to help dealers and poachers realize the futility in actually killing of the rhino for its horn. Then there is a need to make them realize that there is no real medicinal value that can be attached to the horn of the rhino.
  4. Increased funding and donations Donations from the public will help to conserve the rhino for future generations as stricter measure can be taken to help safeguard them.Even more exciting, is the introduction of a treatment known as Rhinoprotect where the rhino horn is made valueless to poachers as it gets injected with color dye and poison whereby X-ray scanners will be able to detect the horn. More information on this process will be revealed later on.
  5. Selling off horns from rhino who died of natural causes, or in cases where the horns broke off. Apparently there are over 25 tons of rhino horn available in South Africa. This process needs to be legalized to get it into motion.
  6. Bans on rhino horn sale Bans being placed on using rhino horn within Asian countries like Taiwan, Korea, and Japan is certainly contributing as there not such a high demand for horns like it used to be. Except for places like China, Thailand and Vietnam where the demand is still rising.
  7. Rhino horn poisoning Positive action needs to be taken to preserve our rhino for our grandchildren and their children. Rhino Protect is a project that was initiated by Damian Vergnaud, who is the owner of Inverdoorn Game Reserve & Safari Lodge. After much discussion and consideration it was decided that it is best to poison the rhino horn, making it unpalatable for human consumption, which is the main reason for poaching taking place. The good thing about injecting color dye into the rhino horn, is that the 40 minute procedure poses no real threat to the health of the animals involved. As this procedure makes the actual horn worthless, it is a better way to ensure the survival of our rhino.
