South African wildlife vet Will Fowlds is in Hanoi today to lead a rhino workshop hosted by the Vietnamese government.

South African, American and Malaysian ambassadors, Vietnamese government officials, a delegation from Vietnam CITES as well as journalists are expected to attend the information-sharing event in Hanoi.

“Hopefully this will pave the way for some serious action to reduce demand. My message, the reality of rhino poaching for the rhinos that are being slaughtered by the hundreds. I am praying we hit a nerve,” Dr Fowlds said on his Facebook page this week.

“The change that has taken place in South Africa was brought about not by some Damascus Road revelation, but by ordinary, fallible human beings, who ultimately recognized that they had been cast together by forces of history that could not be undone…and that in the final analysis, they were dependent on one another to a degree that they could either live together or perish together, and who then followed the painful and difficult logic of that recognition.”
