The following infographic, though not exhaustive, outlines 15 crucial, interlinked and intertwined issues that have become critical in the fortunes of rhinos, indeed for all wild species that face the depredations of trafficking and overexploitation. Despite the great divide that the pro/no trade debate has created, the one thing about which all rhino conservationists will agree is that there is no silver bullet, no one thing that above all else will ensure the survival of the species in the wild in Africa and Asia. Instead, the answers lie in a whole range of tactics and strategies that need to be rigorously applied. Only if consistent progress across this broad front is maintained, will the future of rhinos be likely to follow the high road. Failure even in a few areas will create weak links in the conservation chain and rhinos will continue down a very uncertain path.
