Rhinos moved to ‘safe areas’ in East Cape

08 March 2013
IN an effort to prevent further incidents of rhino poaching in the Eastern Cape, MEC for Economic Development, Environmental Affairs and Tourism, Mcebisi Jonas, said black rhinos were being moved to “areas of safety”.

Speaking before the 2013 budget speech yesterday, Jonas said although not much money was spent on fighting rhino poaching, the Green Scorpions had been “doing phenomenally well”.

“In the Eastern Cape we have been doing exceptionally well in fighting such crimes as rhino poaching.

“People are really doing their jobs and the success rate is high.”

He wanted to build a relationship between the private and public sector to strengthen crime-fighting initiatives.

“The great thing is that we know exactly which areas are vulnerable, so we have started to move them [rhinos] to areas of safety.” – Rochelle de Kock
