    Interesting story. The premise may be sound theoretically, the practicality may not be so certain, as detailed by conservationists. But Kudos for them for looking for an alternative.

    :p

    The placebo effect from eating/owning rhino horn etc. DOES NOT work if one knows that the horn is fake.
    So, any Mr. Rich Limpdi—Āk would rather buy a real horn, despite its illegality.

    It's a moronic decision to support wildlife-threatening traditions - which must disappear from brains of their bearers, or together with them.
