Were you able to match the samples mentioned in the so-called “Ferreira” paper to RRP records?

No. As we have been denied access to the relevant microchip numbers and DNA samples, despite a request for same under the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA), we were unable to match the samples to any animals treated by RRP. We did, however, receive written confirmation from SANParks that no samples had ever been sent for laboratory testing. It’s “research findings” were based entirely on a “visual inspection” of a horn by an in-house ecologist.
