There is “protection” for rhino horn smuggling into Vietnam

The rhino horns consumed in Vietnam are mainly imported from South Africa. According to a recent report on the import-export of rhino horns by CITES Management Authority in Vietnam, in 2003 – 2010, 657 rhino horns were legally exported from South Africa to Vietnam.

But in fact, only 170 horns were in the import list in Vietnam. Thus, about 74 percent of rhino horns were illegally brought into Vietnam.
