Dear Mr Shaik,
Re. Legal Rhino Horn Sales.
As the CEO of the TRUE GREEN ALLIANCE (TGA) I have been bombarded with queries from the public requesting why, after the HLP discussions were concluded, South Africa is not permitting the legal sale of rhino horn from our captive-bred rhino farms? The public are eager to know when legal rhino horn sales will be permitted. OR, if trade in legal rhino horn is not going to be permitted, why not?
I am mandated to keep my TGA members, and the general public, informed about such matters.
Thanking you in anticipation.
Ron Thomson. CEO – TGA.
