Rhino Poaching Factsheet
Rhino poaching, in South Africa alone, now accounts for 1.6 animals per day. This comes down to 1 rhino poached every 15 hours. More than 550 rhino will die annually if current poaching rates continue. Rhino poaching has increased with 4000% in South Africa between 2007 and 2012.

Elephant Poaching Factsheet
CITES Secretariat’s programme for Monitoring the Illegal killing of Elephants (MIKE) warns of an ongoing increase in levels of elephant poaching since 2006, with 2011 displaying the highest levels of poaching since MIKE records began. Poaching levels are now clearly increasing in all African subregions. Central Africa continues to display the highest levels of elephant poaching. The current level is believed to be the threshold above which elephant populations are in net decline. (Factsheet Design: Anthony Roberts, ZED Creative)
