Given the new balance real rate of return in rubles and potential risks, the increased part of investors prefer foreign currency,” he explained.

In South Africa poachers have a free run

Fast two and a half months officially prescribed Lockdown gave the South Africans the course. In front of food expenditure are long queues, Doctors complain more and more cases of malnutrition, unemployment is expected to climb, according to forecasts coming up on 50%. Now the unique animal world suffers. Had a hard curfew initially led to the national parks of the country was at peace, watching Ranger is currently more cases of poaching.

Free the Rapporteur for Africa, based in Cape town.

In the Pilanesberg national Park and the protection of Mafikeng and Botsalano areas, employees of the national Park authority and a guardian of the organization “Rhino 911” dozens of rhinos have cut off the Horn, to protect them from the poachers. The Horn consists of Keratin, a fiber protein that is also found in hair and finger nails. Exact Figures about how many rhinos poached, and how many being dehorned you were held back, in order to protect the animals. Nico Jacobs, a helicopter pilot and founder of “Rhino 911”, reported that during his flights he discover lately, almost every day the carcass of slaughtered slain rhinos.

Dead rhinos in the Safari regions

Without the valuable Horn, the animals can reach a weight of up to 2.6 tons and a body length of almost four meters, for the poacher hardly a value. For a kilo of Horn are currently being paid around $ 60,000. Mainly in the High Society of countries such as China or Vietnam, the powder is as a supposed medicine for any Suffering popular and more expensive than Gold or cocaine.

For the past three years, Rhino 911 supports “” the “Dehorning”. The method is not without controversy. The Horn grows again, however, critics argue that horn loose Rhino bulls were able to defend themselves well. In addition, it was made in the past, the observation that African poachers had slaughtered Rhino without a Horn slaughtered: out of Frustration, because they were chased for days, the traces of a worthless animal, or to prevent this from happening a second Time.

Currently, about 18,000 are in Africa-Wide and 5500 black rhinos live in the wild. Were reported to have been killed in the past ten years, about 9000 African rhinos for their Horns, however, poaching has declined slightly recently. This success is now available on the game. What is striking is that in the past few weeks, rhinos are mainly killed in areas that are in Safari-very popular among the tourists and for the animals as safe applied.

The tourists are missing

“The presence of visitors to protect the animals,” says the German Sandra Claassen, which operates in Cape town, the travel company “Elela Africa”, and on sustainable tourism has specialized. “Now, the poachers have free rein. Virtually unnoticed you can move in the national parks.“ Unlike Tanzania, which has allowed travel again, keeps the South African government for fear of the Coronavirus its borders to tourists and wants to open again until next February for tourism.

For many South Africans, that would be a disaster. According to the South African government are engaged in the tourism sector of the country more than 700,000 people. Thus, every tenth job depends almost on the business with the travelers. Almost 17 million tourists visited the country at the Cape in the past year. But not only South Africa is affected. In the whole of Africa, the travel industry provides for revenues of about 39 billion dollars. And also from Kenya, and Botswana Rangers in the tourist-free time to an increase in poaching.

Not only the attention due to the Safari-vacationers will be missed in the Serengeti, Okavango Delta and Kruger Park. The Rangers fear for their Jobs. “The maintenance of Rangers is extremely expensive, and to Finance without revenue from tourism is hardly,” says Claassen, who supports, among other things, on the edge of the South African Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, a village community. They now fear that Hunger, many people will again float in the poaching.

The police said that Morgan initially assumed that the driver had a medical problem or was under the influence of alcohol. The policeman approached the stopped vehicle from behind and wondered why he could not see the driver’s head through the rear window.

Morgan had finally found that a young child was the driver and sole occupant of the car. It was a five-year-old. The shot of the dash cam recorded how the policeman says: “How old are you? Are you five years old Wow. “And further:” Where did you learn to drive a car? “Morgan told the local broadcaster KSL that the boy had been sitting on the edge of the driver’s seat to reach the foot pedals. The child’s parents said they had never driven a car.

The boy had told him that he was on the way to his sister in California. After his arrival, he wanted to buy a Lamborghini. He was under the supervision of an older sibling when he set out. “He grabbed the keys and was gone.” The police noted that the boy turned south from the family home in Ogden on Interstate-15 – “the right way to California”.

A police spokesman told KSL that the son’s jaunt could have legal consequences for the parents. They were very happy that nobody was harmed. But that does not mean that human lives were not endangered. Parents should make sure that their car keys are not easily accessible to children.
