In 2013, nearly 700 rhinos were killed in South Africa making it the bloodiest year for rhino poaching. Meanwhile, Nepal had zero poaching of rhinos, elephants and tigers, the second year in a row. This is remarkable considering that Nepal is close to Vietnam and borders China. Thank you to the Nepalese people for their commitment to protecting these sentient beings.
China and Vietnam remain the biggest consumers and recipients of illegally poached rhino horns. This is nauseating and blood curdling: "A survey of 720 people in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City published earlier this month, found that typical buyers were "educated, successful and powerful individuals" and use rhino horn as currency in networking."
Oh, I got my computer back after more than one month!!! It was surprisingly wonderful to be disconnected.
