In 20 years there will be no rhinoceros left. They will just disappear!


Save rhinoceroses!

the Author of the documentary "Dollars of Rhinoceroses" Olivia Mokeevski investigated hunting behind a rhinoceros horn which threatens an animal - the victim of organized crime, Le Monde writes.

In March, 2017 Vince, a white rhinoceros from the Tuaysky zoo (Ivelin), has been killed with three bullets of the 12th caliber, and his horn is sawn off by poachers. It was the first and egregious example when in the European zoo (!) have killed a rhinoceros, the phenomenon, almost usual in Africa where this animal is killed by each eight hours.

the Investigation made by the Rhino newspaper and the director Olivia Mokeevski shows that "the new person of organized crime" is behind these murders dictated by the law of the market. it is ready to pay

I for a rhinoceros horn to pay as much how many for gold or heroin.

Olivia Mokeevski has answered several questions on the investigation which we also publish for you: Why we have decided to make by

this documentary?

Olivia Mokeevski: When we speak about problems with animals, people often say that it is sad for the planet. But they don't consider it the vital issue. Having made this documentary, I wanted to show that trade in horns of rhinoceroses is a new direction of organized crime. And it is identical to drug traffic or weapon.

Is not only about "a problem for ecologists". Those who say that "The earth will continue to rotate", forget that plunder of the nature is one of the first sources of financing of underworld and terrorist groups. Therefore it is not only about preservation of a species of animals.

At such rates of massacre when the end to rhinoceroses comes?

By estimates, remained about 25 000 today, whether it be white or black. In South Africa about 1000 individuals perish every year. Therefore we can assume that disappearance will happen in the next 20 years. But it concerns only rhinoceroses.

Lviv, for example, in 2050 will be more. The problem is that the less animals are, the it is less than genetic variety and than quicker the look disappears.

As mafia will organize hunting behind horns of rhinoceroses?

Mafia masks under the companies, and imt five levels. Nizhny Novgorod - small poachers. Top - most often Asian businessmen from China or Hong Kong which work with quite lawful companies. During shooting of the documentary we have risen to levels 3 and 4, that is the sponsors mixed with other traffic, such as ivory or drugs.

These organizations have the people on several continents and?? are very well organized. When someone is arrested, they are immediately replaced.

As you have convinced poachers to testify?

U us shouldn't be Manichean vision which is that: "those who kill a rhinoceros are impious, those who protect them are kind".

In South Africa one of the facts of a problem are apartheid consequences. In this war for horns of an obnaruzhiv
