Because of the significant number of rhinos located within the park, management from within decided to being selling some of the rhinos at auction; however, selling the rhinos was under one condition: “its removal could not negatively impact the populations from which it came.” White rhinos tended to sell faster than black ones because since they were less rare and were less aggressive. Some of the biggest issues presented in this case were: Kruger National Park did not know to whom they were selling the rhinos, poaching on Kruger National Park land for the rhinos horn (leaving rhinos dead or tranquilized and in pain to the point they could be killed by other animals,) and the loss of funding that Kruger Park was undergoing. In the Asian population, it was said that to rhino horns worked to retain their cultural beliefs and also that the horn of a rhino could cure cancer as it is said to be “a very beneficial aphrodisiac”, which in fact is not true. The Indian population wanted the horns of rhinos as daggers. The poachers were very tactful and did it to gain a good bit of money by selling on the black market. When it comes to the sale of rhinos, many people viewed Kruger’s approach to selling rhinos as a bit unethical; they did not know to whom they were selling and SANParks association viewed the “put-and-place” of rhinos for hunting unethical. Outside people viewed the sale of rhinos by Kruger posed a threat greater than that of poachers. They also thought it was wrong to move these rhinos from Kruger National Park and sell them for reasons other than keeping the animals conserved/preserved.
a. Ethical dilemma(s)
The main ethical dilemmas faced by Kruger National Park and the rhino species is poaching, lack of communication to the public about poaching and animal cruelty, and the loss of funds which would make it harder, if impossible to continue operating . Poaching according to dictionary.com is “the illegal practice of trespassing on another’s property to hunt or steal game without the landowner’s permission.”
b. Overall strategy and vision
Kruger National Park’s overall strategy is sell rhinos at conservation to come up with lost funding. Their vision is to conserve and protect the rhino species and other animals/environment on their land.
c. Impact of dilemma if not addressed
If the dilemma is not addressed, Kruger National Park would continue to lose funding (perhaps all of it), and the animals would become less protected, resulting in more poaching and animal cruelty. Kruger Park would not be able to fund their operations and it would potentially cause a close of business; which would lead to people stealing the rhinos from the land, etc.
