The problem we have is that only a very small minority of people have the mindset. And very few people care enough to put it into practice

A very small change in mentality could mean that we don't need to run away to destroy another planet. The problem we have is that only a very small minority of people have the mindset. And very few people care enough to put it into practice. Or wish to think about it because it's new and different and not at all selfish. And the people in charge aren't the kind of people who care to help either.
It's scary, really, how ignorant we are as a species. I'm sure, when the time comes, we'll be screaming out to God for help us fix it. And we'll end up with a new population descended from rats, cockroaches, midgeys and stinging nettles. Hahaha.
This makes me so angry. With kids, I watch a lot on animals, the planet... educational stuff, and my husband and I were just talking about this....
Why don't they chip the horns? I mean seriously? It would be like dentistry. Drill a hole, but in the chip, fill it in so it's not noticeable, and so when they're poached and their horn severed... the chip tracks right to the criminals.
I can't imagine why this is not already happening, and these people jailed.

It's hard to cut the opportunity when it's black market medicine that's the issue. I think the idea of chucking some sildenafil over the fence is a good idea, something that actually works and doesn't kill the animal involved. It makes me sad that people take out an animal for sport or to sell such a tiny part of it. Especially with animals that could easily kill us if we were lacking guns or knives or whatever. We sorta fixed the elephant problem so surely we can fix this as well with some tighter control and better education?
Unfortunately, I sound a lot more idealistic than I am. I find it difficult to believe the people doing it will listen when money is involved. Wipe out an entire species so someone will get some cash. It disgusts me.
