Estimates put the global Black Rhino population at about 5,000. Namibia has a black rhino population of 1,795. This species population has decreased 90% since the 1960s and if we don't actively work to save everyone their time is running out. That is why it is totally irresponsible for this group to auction off a permit to shoot and kill an endangered Black Rhino.
Also, this past March the National Fish and Wildlife U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service approved the import of a trophy-hunted black rhino for the first time. We are also calling on the federal body to again fully enforce their policy of no imports or exports of endangered species. Half measures will only lead to extinction, and has likely led to this latest development.
