Wild World: Rhisotope Project Plans to Preserve Africa’s Rhinos, Elephants including Cycad plants.
In the interview, Dr. James Larkin mentioned that scientific research will play a big role in preserving other species too. “We are also starting to think about whether we can do it with elephant ivory and then maybe look at cycad plants. These items have a high value, because of their rarity, but are smuggled. You can think of these isotopes as tracking device that doesn’t run out. There are about 11,000 installed radiation points, there are border agents, custom agents that can easily track them”, concluded Dr. Larkin.
