This Report tries to unpack South Africa’s role in a world where Africa’s animals are literally “Under Siege”.
We highlight an obvious pattern: legal trade in both ivory and rhino horn is part of the problem and should be prohibited, because it has been used to launder illegal ivory and rhino horn which in turn has stimulated demand. Criminals, benefitting from corrupt and inefficient administration in many parts of the world, including in South Africa and other Southern African countries, have taken full advantage. As a result of these factors many wild animals are under siege and facing extirpation.
