Poaching Could Lead to Elephant Extinction Within 12 Years

Poaching Could Lead to Elephant Extinction Within 12 Years

Elephants have roamed the African savannah for 50 million years, but if the escalating poaching problem isn’t stopped, elephants could be extinct in 12 years.

Elephants have roamed the African savannah for 50 million years, but if the escalating poaching problem isn’t stopped, elephants could be extinct in 12 years.

That information comes from Daphne Sheldrick who runs the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya.

She also said that on the African continent every 15 minutes an elephant is slain for its ivory tusks.

Ivory has been banned worldwide for quite some time, but last year alone 36 thousand African elephants were killed for it.

Trinkets made from the material remain popular in many areas in the Far East, and customs officials have been reporting significant seizures of tusks and objects.

In Kenya, two recent raids turned up 4 and-a-half tons of ivory that was headed for the black market.

At about the same time, officials in Hong Kong confiscated over 1100 tusks.

Ms. Sheldrick said that only about 10 percent of what is being introduced to the market is discovered by authorities.

She urges people to stop buying anything made of ivory, even if it’s legal and predates the global ban.

How to Core a Pear for Poaching

How to Core a Pear for Poaching

How to Core a Pear for Poaching – as part of the expert series by GeoBeats. Hi, my name is Oron Franco, from The Private Chef NYC, and today I am going to show you how to core a pear for poaching. Now, since we are going to poach this pear, I already went ahead and peeled it. What poaching is, is cooking something in a liquid in a very low temperature to allow whatever it is you are cooking to absorb all the flavors of your cooking liquid. So, if this is pear, we can poach it in some red wine, maybe a fruit infused liquid with some sugar for a nice desert. We can eat the inside, so we are going to want to take the core out. Now, we are going to take this little tube, this is for coring, place the pear like this, standing up, and just take this and slide it all the way in. Give it a few turns and pull out, and this will come out in one piece. Toss this and you have got a perfect pear for poaching.

Rhino Revolution Unmanned Aerial and Terrestrial Game Conservation Management Solution – Live Demonstration

Rhino Revolution Unmanned Aerial and Terrestrial Game Conservation Management Solution – Live Demonstration

Rhino Revolution will be hosting the ‘Ivory Solution Approach’ to Game Conservation and Management to be demonstrated at Leadwood Big Game Estate on the 24th April 2014.

You may have seen articles about an ‘Intensive Protection Zone’ to be established in the Kruger National Park by SANParks. It is this solution Rhino Revolution will be demonstrating live at Leadwood Big Game Estate (Hoedspruit) on the 24th April 2014 at 09h30. It is an extremely sophisticated solution developed by Eye Remote Solutions and supported by Siyafunda Conservation and Save the Rhino Campaign.

The solution uses cutting edge technology both on the ground and in the air for detection, tracking and interception. It has enhanced surveillance systems for situational awareness and intelligence gathering and if adopted by SANParks it will impact not only on conservation in South Africa but the whole of Africa. Designed specifically to combat poaching it has many other attributes which will contribute to game management in general i.e. fighting poachers, monitoring wildlife, tracking specific animals finding (injured) animals etc. Elements of it retain many industrial uses.

When operational the solution will be effective by both day and night and in most weather conditions providing 24/7 coverage.

The ‘Ivory Solutions Approach’ has never been seen before and may be described as “listening to the wilderness”. Its main benefits and advantages are:

- Situational awareness for decision making and rapid response.
- Reduced human risk.
- Huge savings on operational costs.
- Its ability to follow targets, man and animals, until they are intercepted.
- Auto tracking of specific animals.
- Huge time savings.
- 24/7 coverage.
- Environmentally friendly.

To receive an invitation please contact Trevor Mahlakwane at the Rhino Revolution office on 015 793 0471/082 086 7918 or email: info@www.rhino-revolution.com.
