    Poachers wipe out rhinos in Mozambique

    Poachers, aided by game rangers, have killed every single rhino in the Mozambique section of one of Southern Africa痴 most vaunted transfrontier parks.

    The director of the International Fund for Animal Welfare's wildlife crime and consumer awareness programme, Kelvin Alie,said poachers had killed 15 rhino in Mocambique's Limpopo National Park last month, the last remaining animals from an estimated population of more than 300 when the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park was proclaimed in 2002.

    The administrator of the Limpopo National Park told media that 30 rangers will appear in court soon, charged with involvement in the killing of the rhinos.

    的t is tragic beyond tears that we learn game rangers have now become the enemy in the fight to protect rhino from being poached for their horns.

    典hat the entire rhino population of part of such an important conservation initiative can be wiped out and with the help of wildlife enforcement officers - speaks volumes about the deadly intent of the wildlife trade.

    They will stop at nothing to get to their quarry, said Alie.

    Limpopo National Park is part of the Great Limpopo National Park, which straddles South Africa (Kruger National Park), Mozambique (Limpopo National Park) and Gonarezhou (Zimbabwe) a conservation area of about 35 000kmイ.
