"Prices have already reached unprecedented heights, with ivory commanding more than $1,000 per kilogram in Beijing, while rhino horn fetches more than 20 times that figure—far more precious than gold or cocaine"

"The fact is that elephants, rhinos, and other 'charismatic megafauna' are essential to sub-Saharan Africa’s vital tourism industries"

The story Newsweek has is a success story of bringing rhinos back to Zambia. It also talks about the potential for restoring them to other parks in Zambia including South Luangwa where both Zikomo Safari and Nsefu Wildlife are located. 

It is a story of hope in a time where we see little reason to do so. We wish them continued success!

I think one of the most effective solutions there is to catch those Chinese who are buying ivories from Elephants and Rhinos. There's no one who will hunt or sell neither if there's no one who will buy. Also, I hope that the Government that have the issues should implement stricter policies and prevail a heavier fine for those who will still violate. In addition, if the personnel assigned to the issue can't solve the problem, immediately replace them who are brave enough and can stand for their position. This is a serious threat not only for us humans, but also for the diversity of the animals.
