Barbara MaasEven at the the most conservative level of consumption there is not enough rhino horn left on Earth to satisfy demand in China and Vietnam as per your assertions. • A single standard rhino horn prescription of 3, 9 or 50 grams administered to 3.9%, 1.3% and 0.2% of the current adult population of China and Vietnam respectively, would require the horn mass of the entire global rhino population (29,324).• South Africa’s 6,014 privately owned white rhinos could service a mere 0.97%, 0.32% and 0.06% of Vietnamese and Chinese adults with a single prescription of 3, 9 or 50 grams. This figure is reduced to 0.77%, 0.26% and 0.05%, if rhino owners who indicated an interest in participating in rhino horn trade alone are considered.• Rhino horn derived from regular dehorning of South Africa’s 6,014 privately owned white rhino population would provide a single prescription of 3, 9 and 50 grams for 0.12%, 0.04% and 0.007% of adults in China and Vietnam, or 0.10, 0.03 and 0.006 percent for rhinos of owners willing to participate in legal trade.
