illegal rhino horn trade reveals



china banned the selling of rhino horn since 1993, but it’s still very easy to get them in china. an NGO spent 11 months to investigate the illegal rhino horn trade and reveal key persons, networks and methods of traffickers. rhino horns and other illegal wildlife products are smuggled from Vietnam into china through mountain trails or unofficial ports. dealers would hire children to smuggle the products because they are too young for jail and would only need to pay for small fines.
