The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is “deeply concerned” about the South African Constitutional Court ruling which has effectively struck down the moratorium on domestic trade in rhino horn.
The lifting of the moratorium relates to the procedures that were used to put it in place not the substantive merits of the ban.
The WWF now calls on government to renew the moratorium in a way that complies with the law.
