By: International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW)

WASHINGTON, D.C. Oct. 29, 2013 – IFAW Statement: Jeffry Flocken, International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW):

Killing one of the world's most endangered animals in the name of conservation is perverse to say the least, and drumming up a bidding frenzy to get to the opportunity to shoot one of the last of a species is just irresponsible," said Jeffrey Flocken, IFAW North American Regional Director. "We know from tigers and polar bears and other endangered animals that perceived scarcity drives up market pressures. This is just an attempt to manipulate a horrific situation where rhino poaching is out of control, and fuel excitement around being able to kill an animal whose future existence is already hanging in the balance.

Founded in 1969, IFAW saves animals in crisis around the world. With projects in more than 40 countries, IFAW rescues individual animals, works to prevent cruelty to animals, and advocates for the protection of wildlife and habitats.
