Meet on rhino-poaching, illegal trade, rhino horn verification process

Nature’s Beckon and Journalists Forum Assam have organized a Citizen’s Meet on relentless rhino-poaching, illegal rhino horn trade and also the ongoing rhino horn verification process in Assam on 1 September (Thursday) at Guwahati Press Club. The meeting, where everyone concerned to the conservation of forest and wildlife is invited, will start at 11 am and continue till 2.30 pm.

For records, the Rhino Horn Verification Committee, constituted by Assam government found at least five fake horns at the treasury, which provides ample sense for demanding a high level probe against the poaching of one-horned rhinos in various forest reserves for illegal international markets.

The Citizen’s Meet is expected to prepare a memorandum to the State and Union government in New Delhi drawing their immediate attention towards the protection of wildlife in all forest reserves including the world famous Kaziranga National Park.
