Skepticism over new 'fake rhino horn' and its intended effects
Conservationist Mark Tennant says he doubts that a new technique for making fake rhino horn will help the fight against poaching.
Scientists have found a way of making fake rhino horn in a bid to dupe the black market.
Scientists have used a combination of silk and horsetail hair to create a product that's "confusingly similar" to the real thing.
Tennant says the imitation horn will most likely lower the price of the real deal instead of putting an end to the illegal market.
