CAPE TOWN - Government has announced a national decrease in the number of rhino poaching since the start of the year.

Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa gave an update at Parliament on Monday morning on government's efforts in dealing with the scourge.

The Integrated Strategic Management Approach of Rhinoceros was adopted by Cabinet in August 2014.

It’s a multi-disciplinary initiative to combat the threat posed by rhino poaching.

Molewa says that from January 2017 to last month, 529 rhino have been poached, compared to 542 over the same period last year.

"We are happy to report that the Skukuza Regional Court has been sitting since March 2017 and is now fully functional with a number of successful prosecutions."

The Kruger National Park has seen a 34% drop in poaching since January.

The carcasses of 243 of the animals have been found in the reserve, compared to 354 last year.

Creative bookkeeping - aside from the fact that her figures appear to be short of those given out by Oscap, she is not reflecting the poaching as a % which in fact would cast everything in an entirely different light given that there are far fewer rhinos, - it may even be an increase!!!!!!!!!!! @#$

In the past it was only KNP, now it is all over the country which makes the battle even more difficult O/
