So Ross Quentin Begemann and i had a savant ramble about the real regarding rhino poaching.... |
a game Ranger at Kruger park, he bears witness to what goes on behind the scenes when the cameras get packed away and the tourists hamba huis toe.
More pertinent factors influencing the debacle is the issue of relocation, environment , social interaction (surprise, animals are more social than we like to think) , and the PURE belligerence practised by consumers who scramble to encroach their territory without due respect to maliciously materialize .
These creature's Achilles heel is the fact that they take so long to breed. They also suffer a form of animal PTSD as displayed by most animals that have endured human cruelty. Nature is FAR more complex than selfie socialites bother to acknowledge.
Real change can only come in the form of socio economic development around the parks . A skilled poacher hunter only earns R2500 a month ( around $200). They live in the wild silently observing poacher patterns without adequate defense and call in the special teams long after the damage is done.
When one has to endure economic hardship and feed their kids , the threshold to what man would do is lowered dramatically. The Rhino horns on your cars seldom make a dent in the quagmire. Education ( speculative) and realization that us hoomens ARE part of nature , not above it, is the only way they will stand a chance . Along with every other species globally.
That's Zhoozsh praat for put away the damn snapchat for 10 seconds and live a little, do a little.
