Southern White Rhino

Rhin-o-success! Trade in Southern White Rhino horn rejected, but African elephants and lions denied additional protections

Animal Defenders International (ADI) has applauded the overwhelming rejection at CITES’ (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) 17th conference in Johannesburg of Swaziland’s attempt to legalize trade in Southern White Rhino Horn. There was great opposition to the controversial proposal, including actress Joanna Lumley, who voiced her support for ADI’s campaign.
