"Whatever you do may seem insignificant, but it is most important that you do it”

Rhinoceros Day September - Support & Awareness - We must save the speices from extinction.



22nd September 2012 is tomorrow and it marks the day of Rhinoceros day worldwide, from which most of our Rhinoceros are being slain in every direction possible by hunter and poacher in the only country that holds the largest population of Rhinoceros, South Africa.

International Animal Rescue Foundation has been working to create a better harmony, understanding, awareness, plus protection of this gentle giant, along with support, awareness and funding of non-governmental organisations in and outside of the Republic of South Africa, and Kenya.

International Animal Rescue Foundation now a proud and well supported non-governmental 501 C3 organisation came to power in 2011 after deciding upon great pressure that the time was now needed to extend our care, love and compassion for animals that we had been proving to the world way before that time in a more hard-line activist approach. After viewing and seeing the impact of the Rhinoceros in 2009 it was decided upon many meetings with our other teams of environmentalists’ and activists in Africa that the time was now needed to approach this problem and deal with it in a more stringent, tougher, and harsher way than any other organisation has ever done apart from the WWF (World Wide Fund) for nature.

The International Animal Rescue Foundation prouds itself on its unique ground work that is confidential well documented and gains the desired and necessary proof, data and information on how we can help to save the Rhinoceros from now nearing to on the edge of extinction.

There is no more that can be done to conceal the fact that Asia has taken over South Africa that holds the largest Rhinoceros population in the world. Since the Chinese entered South Africa alone the Rhinoceros that’s horn can fetch almost $90,000 on the black market have been hit hard in a thirteen year onslaught. Although there is infinitesimal evidence on the arrival of Chinese workers to Africa and the now nearing loss of the Rhinoceros there are facts of data that we will show on the entrance of Asia to the Republic of South Africa that show in detail suspicious data that we can only now assume that China is the number one kingpin killing the African Rhinoceros.

Modern political and economic relations commenced in the era of Mao Zedong, first leader of the Chinese Communist Party after it took power. Starting in the beginning of the 21st century, the modern state of People’s Republic of China has built increasingly stronger economic ties with African nations. As of August 2007, it is estimated that there are more than 750,000 Chinese nationals working in different African countries. This figure has now quadrupled since 2007 to a maximum of two million Chinese nationals working and living in Africa alone, most of which are living and working in South Africa. Illegal migrants we cannot place an estimated or exact figure on as of yet until we evaluate all data we have obtained and since 2011 December.

Trade between China and Africa has increased 700% during the 1990s. China is currently Africa’s largest trading partner. The Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) was established in October 2000 as an official forum to strengthen the relationship. However, a few Western countries—such as the United Kingdom and the United States—have raised concerns over the political, economic and military roles China is playing in the African continent.

The Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs emphasises China’s development aid to Africa, while also stating that China and Africa are making “joint efforts to maintain the lawful rights of developing countries and push forward the creation of a new, fair and just political and economic order in the world”.

This may all seem to the African “good news” however we are not the only persons or organisations that have been documenting the movement of Chinese nationals, along with companies, organisations, umbrella organisations, to institutes.

Farms TO that “we have now solid 100% proof” on that are and have been construction ready for what they the Chinese believe is going to make big bucks via trading the largest, ostentatious, and most desired and wanted Asian item on the traditional Chinese medicine market, that being the prized and most endangered Rhinoceros.

Evidence also shows that the trade route used in the first century  combining Africa, Arabia, Persia, to India, China to Somalia is almost by far identical to that of the trade route used today that sees illegally exported Rhinoceros horn travel from Africa to Asia and other parts of the Arabian peninsula of which governmental organisations, customs and excises, police and environmental law enforcers from Interpol must now act upon to close down these routes or place vast policing into to stop the courier transporting the horn thus disrupting smuggling to even flowing the courier to the buyers and sellers.

Picture above shows a poached Rhinoceros…

The startling trend emerged regarding the Rhinoceros horn when a Chinese member of the government declared to the nation that Rhinoceros horn cured his wife of cancer. No such proof has ever emerged, and no scientific research ever carried out on to his wife that leads one to think that all she was suffering from was merely a neurological disorder, skin ailment, or simple influenza to some form of physical illness that one cannot state Rhinoceros horn ever cured without ever having a full, and in-depth analysis off.

The London Zoological Society (LZS) and Hoffmann-La Roche carried out investigations in to the Rhinoceros horn to show if it was medicine and the findings were negative, however we the  International Animal Rescue Foundation we have been in communications with the Rhinoceros Resource Centre (RRC) that have since quoted that these two well-known organisations have lost the data on this and that even though it WAS published to inform individuals and organisations to the public that Rhinoceros horn never has had any medicinal or medical purpose upon the human body “only that of laboratory rats that in very high does lowered the fever of a rat” Dr Felix Pattern has since written a journal quoting that they are in search of the truth which has somewhat mislead and confused a lot of people in to now believing that the Rhinoceros horn is in fact of a “type” of medicine. We International Animal Rescue Foundation though will not under no circumstances work with these drivelling idiots that truly are on some form of methamphetamines that is deluding their minds. We though know exactly what they have been up to and that is rearing up environmentalists and organisations ready for the Rhinoceros trade that they believe should be made legal.

The increase in Chinese nationals though has fuelled a dramatic increase in to the high ring poaching trend. So if we take the increase of nationals in the 1990’s that entered “Africa” from China for trade and other relations then we can see below the alarming increase in the amount of poaching that has risen since this period.

2000 - 7 Rhinoceros poached

2001 - 6 Rhinoceros poached

2002 - 25 Rhinoceros poached

2003 – 22 Rhinoceros poached

2004 – 10 Rhinoceros poached

2005 – 13 Rhinoceros poached

2006 – 24 Rhinoceros poached

2007 – 13 Rhinoceros poached

2008 – 83 Rhinoceros poached

2009 – 122 Rhinoceros poached

2010 – 333 Rhinoceros poached

2011 – 440 Rhinoceros poached

Picture below is the population of white Rhinoceros on private land of which are hunted by trophy hunters that we are now working to stop, also by documenting any hunting in these areas of Rhinoceros and publishing a name and shame campaign. Any hunter that we catch we shall source their EMPLOYERS meaning pictures, gps, videos, and all other hunting proof shall be sent to them personally by hand. International Animal Rescue Foundation will not only give this information via hand to the employers in America and Europe but a full PROTEST without WARNING including pictures and VIDEOS of what YOU done to the animal will be broadcasted at your work place AND your home to. International Animal Rescue Foundation proud itself on its investigation skills and contact skills to and should we find any American, Australian or European that is hunting Rhinoceros on any private land to even non Rhinoceros, such as Kudu, Zebra, Hippopotamus, Nile Crocodile, Boar, Springbok, wildebeest - Then remember WE ARE WATCHING - and WE WILL BE MEETING YOUR EMPLOYERS!. You WISH to attack and humiliate these animals then the I.A.R.F will return the favour in kind.

2012 on the 21st September 2012 sees a staggering 387 South African Rhinoceros slaughtered in cold blood for a horn worth more than gold on the Asian black market that has no medicinal purposes or proven medical data to substantiate the Asian traditional Chinese market claims at all.

Some South African organisations have stared that Rhinoceros poaching has fallen however the true figures are above, the fact we are only in September tells us that we are looking at a massive increase that we have never seen before as of the drop in supply in Vietnam and China to Sudan, Malaysia, Japan, Indonesia and other Asian counties that still believe that Rhinoceros horn is a medicine.

David Mabunda said according to 2007 statistics there were approximately 17 000 rhino in the world, with approximately 15 000 of those in South Africa.  At present SANParks had between 9 000 and 12 000 rhino.  This figure is truly unreal and cannot be proven until a full census is carried out that the Environmental minister quoted would take place early 2012 as of the pressure we had placed and others upon them to take action now regarding the nearing extinction.

2011 The (DEA) Department for Environmental Affairs quoted that activists should become more involved rather than just being a verbal talking arena. That we find highly insulting considering that we ourselves gave to the (DEA) an orchestrated, well documented and professional booklet that they quoted to work on however they have failed to do so, other than make empty and shattered promises doing not one single thing to halt hunting, to even poaching. The article below was written in 2012 July

The Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) said in a statement that animal rights activists should be part of the solution instead of “playing to the gallery.” The statement said the department would like to quash allegations by animal rights activists that criticized efforts to address on-going rhino poaching.

Rhino poaching and illegal trade in rhino horns is a global phenomenon which is also occurring in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, India, Mozambique, Nepal and Zimbabwe, the statement said, quoting the Standing Committee of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) . “South Africa’s experience and intervention measures in fighting the illegal trade were well received and other member states affected by the same problem were encouraged to follow suit, ” the statement said.

To stem the surge in rhino poaching, the government has taken a series steps such as strengthening requirements relating to hunting, the statement said.

Such requirements enable the issuing authorities to determine whether the applicant is a bona fide hunter. In addition to the above, the issuing authority must also consider whether the country of usual residence of the hunting client, where the rhinoceros horn and the rest of the trophy will be imported to, has adequate legislation to ensure that the rhinoceros horns and the rest of the hunting trophy will be used for the purpose as indicated on the permit.

The DEA has also recommended to all Provincial Conservation Authorities, responsible for the issuance of hunting permits, to refuse all applications for white rhinoceros hunting by foreign hunters whose state of usual residence is Vietnam until Vietnam has confirmed, in writing, that all rhino trophies exported since 2010 are still in the possession of the hunters, the statement said.

The DEA also plans to engage stakeholders to reach national consensus on proposals relating to international trade in CITES listed species, according to the statement. This includes discussions with major role-players on whether or not to approach the international community with a proposal to trade in rhino horn.

There are other interventions being implemented in pursuit of resolving the rhino poaching problem, such as the ongoing bilateral consultations with consumer countries such as Vietnam, the statement said.

Also on Tuesday, the DTE said South Africa has to date lost a total of 262 rhinos to illegal poaching since the beginning of this year and a total of 173 individuals have been arrested in connection with rhino poaching.

Targeted provinces include Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North West and KwaZulu-Natal which collectively account for 100 poached rhinos.

South Africa will continue all its efforts locally and internationally to address the ongoing scourge, the DEA said.

Has the (DEA) taken this seriously? Have they hell, and they are not prepared to neither whilst President  Jacob “murdering” Zuma the biggest fraud, international arms dealer, tax cheater, rapist, and woman beater is still at large brain washing all South Africans, to torturing them if they talk about anything that has happened within government to his stately protected homes.


One would say the only thing to save South Africa now from mass tourism economical wipe-out would be to launch a coup against this slaughtering and two-faced bastard that will not respond to no one even when it comes to his own countries problems. We rate him the exact same as Mugabe no different just more power and money to quieten people, especially those that were dealing in the arms trade. Do we advocate such a happening in South Africa to see this criminal “dictator ousted” YES we do. The sooner the better, and whilst he is in power South Africa will fall to its knees like that of Zimbabwe. It’s not a time of if but how soon will it start.

Arrests have gone up for this year to-date regarding the Rhinoceros poaching crisis. International Animal Rescue Foundation is pleased with this, although not so pleased with certain individuals being arrested that are supposed to be caring for the safe keeping of the Rhinoceros. Game rangers, police officers, anti-poachers VETS to just Africans and poachers themselves have all been arrested on suspicion of poaching to poaching they have been imprisoned to awaiting court cases on Rhinoceros poaching to other related issues.

Arrests are as follows;

KNP 49



MP 56





KZN 10




2012 So far as of 13th September sees 199 “persons” arrested that is up from 2010 but so far down for 2012 from which we cannot give the actual figure until SANparks communicates back with us regarding these statistical data.

2011 saw 232 arrested and 2010 saw 165. 2012 sees as said 199 for the 13th September 2012 this is explaining to us that the number of opportunists is rising and as of “Operation Trojan Horse” and online and ground investigation unit is viewing in Asian hotspots the data that we are withholding for security reasons shows to us that “certain” parts of Asia are running now low in Rhinoceros horn of which they are creating toxic FAKE horn to sell to its citizens in the belief that this toxic manmade chemical will cure them. Again another diabolical, delirious, compulsive lie.

There are certain individuals that believe farming the Rhinoceros thus making the horn legalised to sell is going to save them. International Animal Rescue Foundation is against this, and not only are we against this but by farming them is going against one of our main mission statements. Farming animals is the number one criteria that is drastically pushing climate change to the brink.

One cannot under no circumstances allow the “legal trade to exist” if one cannot even control the illegal aspects of this destructive trade.

The disadvantage of farming the Rhinoceros for legal trade in “fake medicine” are below.

There are many justifications also presented against a legitimized rhino horn market. Not least among these is the question of how likely a global process of decriminalizing such trade would be. This would have to involve serious lobbying with signatories to CITES to garner sufficient consensus that would bring forth a legal and well-regulated international trade. In absence hereof, bilateral arrangements could be reached with states wishing to trade in rhino horn, thereby only necessitating legislative amendments within these countries, and their withdrawal from CITES and any other relevant treaty. This would, however, certainly be frowned upon within the international domain, as it would take place contrary to international consensus.

What’s more, there are concerns that while legalisation might work for South Africa as the country boasts the world’s largest rhino population. Nonetheless, this endeavour is less likely to be feasible in other countries due to depleted rhino populations. As a result hereof, there will be difficulty in securing buy-in from other signatories to bring forward a global reform, considering that they would have little interest in doing so. Over-and-above this, there are questions about how the legal trade could be efficiently regulated at a domestic level within South Africa, and how the decriminalization and start-up process of trading in rhino horn would be funded.

Another key argument against legal trade where the product is obtained through dehorning is that there may not be enough rhino to satisfy the demand for horn in this scenario – particularly considering the relatively slow rate with which the horn grows back. Although it is put forward that the price will serve to balance demand with supply, sceptics note that initial demand could be supplied by the existing stockpiles but that once this is exhausted, the existing meagre rhino population would be hard-pressed to continue to meet this demand. As put by the Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa (WESSA): “rhino horn is valuable because of the simple economics of the situation – demand far exceeds supply”. In fact, according to Dr. Gerhard Damm, the market would need to generate nearly 68 tons per annum to supply the demand emanating from China alone.

Unease has also been expressed surrounding the suggested tranquilisation of rhinos for dehorning, with regards to the well-being of the animals. There are risks that are attached to the regular use of drugs on the rhino population. These include the possibility of injury or death, as well as the potential inhibitory impacts on the reproduction capacity of female rhinos.

Rhinoceros horn is used for just about everything in Asia to even making tea as pictured above. A 1 ton African Rhinoceros would have suffered in severe pain for hours, after having its horn hacked of with many forms of weapons, chainsaw, blunt axes, to even AK47s, machetes too. All for FAKE BOGUS CHINESE MEDICINE

The DEA and CITES banned Vietnam hunters from hunting the Rhinoceros, however there has been NO drop in poaching, if anything it has just risen. By banning the country its worthless. All asians appear the same as of facial features. Passports and identifications can be changed upon request. Banning Vietnam has NOT in any way stopped these bastards. DEA the PROBLEM is in your OWN land..

Picture above shows just a small form of what Rhinoceros horn is made in to from the raw form above this picture for the TCM market (Traditional Chinese Medicine)

Rhino horn fetches about $65 000 (R500 000) a kilogram, or approximately $400 000 a rhino, making poaching a highly profitable business if you can evade the law. The problem is that while poachers have a $400 000 incentive to kill a rhino, conservation management or private game farm owners do not have a $400 000 incentive to save one and the funds available for effective policing are severely limited in relation to those behind poaching operations. The tables are tipped and while the demand for rhino horn and its relative price continue to rise new strategies will be needed in the fight to save the rhino from complete extinction.


The problems are only going to become worse when we see reports on vets that are supposed to be saving and caring for our Rhinoceros and other game in Africa. It’s heart breaking to know that there are criminals like this that will work for the GOLD as we say just to get a cut in the margin of something that is FAKE MEDICINE http://www.mydreamcourse.co.za/blog/2011/01/24/yet-another-south-african-veterinarian-arrested-for-rhino-horn-crimes/

Think nothing of it, International Animal Rescue Foundation will be ensuring that we source you, uproot you, and ensure that your brought before the bloody courts for your crimes against our wildlife.

International Animal Rescue Foundation now keeps all Rhinoceros work private as of working on the ground using up to date technology, APU’s that are highly trained and effective thus investigating anything “that moves” within a mile of a Rhinoceros, vets, rangers, to tourists and police of SAPS are constantly monitored that come within a striking distance of the parks please rest assured you can RUN, but you will never HIDE from us.

Why has International Animal Rescue Foundation made this public?, because we not only proud ourselves upon the work our teams do BUT we feel great joy on seeing an arrest made that is why they work in silence, discretely but effectively to ensure that a job that needs doing is done to the extreme seeing ultimate satisfaction being brought to those that destroy or wish to destroy our wildlife and corrupt others into the same.

CITES, I.U.C.N, DAE, SANparks have all been given notices to buck their ideas up, not to even contemplate the thought of legalizing the horn but moving forward now in to restructuring, and monitoring the ground teams of veterinary staff, rangers, and organisations that are working within the parks to other Rhinoceros countries.

Rhinoceros day is not just about celebrating “one” of the last prehistoric vegetation eaters on the ground but it’s about creating and manoeuvring SUPPORT, AWARENESS & FUNDING. Please e-mail us for more information at

We shall publish more on this document on what YOU can do to help us and the Rhinoceros on the 22nd September and later today.
