Rhino Poaching

EDM number 2256 in 2010-12, proposed by Katy Clark on 17/10/2011.
Categorised under the topics of Africa, Animal welfare and Animals.

That this House expresses concern at the continuing global practice of rhino poaching by crime syndicates and at the almost daily killing of these animals; notes that this practice is particularly prevalent in South Africa and Zimbabwe; further notes that almost 200 of these highly endangered animals were killed in South Africa alone in the first half of 2011 and killings this year are expected to exceed the 2010 figure of 333; expresses deep concern at the suffering faced by the animals during hunts by poachers; further notes that this poaching is fuelled by demand for rhino horn in traditional medicine markets in Asia; and calls on the Government to work with Asian and African nations to tackle this crime and enforce a global ban on rhino horn use in medicines.

This motion has been signed by a total of 48 MPs.
