En la última década, los cazadores furtivos han matado a casi 10.000 rinocerontes en toda África para alimentar la demanda de cuerno en el mercado negro. El Grupo de Especialistas en Rinocerontes Africanos (AfRSG) de la CSE de la UICN existe para promover el desarrollo y el mantenimiento a largo plazo de poblaciones viables de las diversas subespecies de rinocerontes africanos en estado salvaje.

Following two decades in formal conservation in South Africa, I embarked on a freelance career consulting in conservation ecology. My formal experience has largely been focused at the interface between science and management – using science to guide conservation management decision making. I spent ten years as a savanna park ecologist before taking on roles in senior and executive management in a conservation agency. With a master’s degree in forest ecology and a PhD in savanna ecology I have extensive field experience in both ecosystems as well as in arid ecosystems. Over 60% of my time as a consultant draws on my specialist expertise in large mammal management and my perspectives on strategic approaches to tackling the challenges of the day. I have a particular interest in grappling with how conservation management decision making can be improved through incorporating an understanding of ecological, behavioural and institutional processes. I am a longstanding member of the IUCN African Rhino Specialist Group and the African Elephant Specialist Group as well as the SADC Rhino Management Group which I currently chair. I have delivered work for UNEP, INTERPOL, African Governments, conservation NGOs and private individuals.
