Jamie Joseph: Battling poaching in Africa
Writer and environmental activist who grew up between South Africa and Zimbabwe, and moved to New Zealand. She is reporting from the frontline of Africa's poaching crisis at savingthewild.com, and has published a story exposing one of the alleged biggest poaching kingpins in the rhino wars.
Rhino poaching in South Africa has made some people extremely rich, South African-born environmental activist Jamie Joseph says.
Speaking on Saturday Morning with Kim Hill, Ms Joseph was scathing about what she said was largely unchecked poaching and the failure of some authorities to prosecute those responsible.
Ms Joseph grew up between South Africa and Zimbabwe, before moving to New Zealand seven years ago, and recently spent nine months shadowing anti-poaching rangers in Africa.
In January, she published a story on her blog about Dumisani Gwala, who she accused of being a kingpin in the so-called rhino wars.
Compared to any other poaching syndicate in South Africa, she said, the scale of Mr Gwala's alleged operation, based 15km from the Mozambique border in the province of Kwa-Zulu-Natal, was "off the charts".
With a police investigation ongoing since 2012 "we're looking at 200 dead rhino", Ms Joseph said.
The rangers were risking their lives to save what wildlife remained in South Africa and they trusted her to shine a light on the horrific practice of rhino horn poaching, she said.
'Cakewalk for criminals'
Even if poachers were arrested, she said, they faced minimal penalties such as fines - which, with rhino horn selling for up to $100,000 per kilo on the black market in China, just meant killing another animal.
The amount of money involved and the fact it was largely risk-free meant it was "a cakewalk for criminals", she said.
"Why would they peddle drugs when they can kill a rhino? The laws are not acting as a deterrent."
Ms Joseph said what was done to rhinos, who were often still conscious when their horns were hacked off, was perhaps the worst atrocity inflicted on animals.
Various solutions had been put forward, such as removing the prized horns, but Ms Joseph said that was not a long-term solution because they grew back.
A formula to make them useless for sale by poisoning the horns had also failed but a new solution might be to attach radioactive isotypes, which would mean any officials smuggling rhino horn in diplomatic bags would still set off alarms at border security.
"I would love to see that ... if you had all the private rhino owners in South Africa poison the horns, that's one quarter of the horns of 20,000 rhino.
"And then you have one of the big NGOs that are based in China and Vietnam blitz a campaign that says you have a one in four chance of contracting a stomach or gastric disease - I'm sure the sales will plummet."
No one would die, Ms Joseph said, but it could stop people engaging in a criminal activity and driving a species to extinction.

Art with Mary Kisler: the Christchurch Art Gallery
Senior Curator, Mackelvie Collection, International Art, at the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, Mary Kisler, discussing the recently reopened Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu.
Mary Kisler reports back from the freshly reopened Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu, discussing works on display by Martin Creed, Bill Culbert, Robyn White, Rita Angus, Frances Upritchard, Connie Samaras and more, as well as what Colin McCahon and Leonard Cohen have in common. As she told Kim Hill.:
"You can not actually go into the gallery now and look at anything there without having the sense of what has happened sitting on your shoulders... There's kind of a metaphor for Christchurch in every single work on display, in one way or another, but also a metaphor for what we need in life; for sustenance."

Sandra Coney: Opening up Waikumete Cemetery
Chair of the Waitakere Ranges Local Board, and driving force behind the inaugural open day at New Zealand's largest cemetery, the first event of its kind in New Zealand.
Waikumete Cemetery in Auckland is holding an open day - the first of its kind in New Zealand - to educate the public about its work.
The cemetery is New Zealand's largest, and the final resting place for over 70,000 people. At 108 hectares, it is also one of the region's largest public parks.
On Sunday, it will try to demystify the morbidity of death, displace some of the apprehension around cemeteries and burial practices, explain the historical relevance of cemeteries and explore cultural differences in the treatment of lost loved ones.
Waitākere Ranges Local Board chair Sandra Coney, who helped put the event together, spoke to Saturday Morning with Kim Hill about the vision for the project.

This Way Up Part 1
Heart attack early warning, swimming the Pacific Ocean, and an amazing tale about genetic mutations.
Duration: 49'15"

Heart attack warning
Heart attacks are the leading cause of death worldwide. Dr Chris Smith of The Naked Scientists has news from the UK where scientists think they've found some important early warning signs of a heart attack, detectable through medical imaging.
An early warning ?
Scientists could have discovered an early warning system to detect heart attacks, the leading cause of death worldwide.
Heart attacks occur when the coronary arteries, which supply blood to the heart itself, become blocked.
Now Imperial College cardiologist Ramzi Khamis and his colleagues, writing in Nature Scientific Reports, have identified a way to pinpoint damage in blood vessels in mice that could cause a future heart attack.
The technique involves injecting an antibody that recognises and attaches itself to oxidised cholesterol linked to the greatest risk of heart attacks. This antibody is marked and can easily be picked up on medical imaging equipment.
Dr Chris Smith of the Naked Scientists says current approaches can only detect where the arteries are narrowed, not the specific "hotspots" where they are most at risk of rupture and blockage.
"At the moment, the gold standard treatment is to inflate a small balloon against the blockage inside a clogged artery, and then prop open the vessel using a wire cage called a stent, which is inserted down a wire temporarily placed inside the artery, " Dr Smith said.
But Dr Khamis speculates that in the future this might not be necessary.
"We're now working on a way to use these antibodies also to deliver drugs to the diseased areas that need them...that will damp down the disease process in the artery wall and prevent further damage or even reverse it."

Swimming the Pacific
Ben Lecomte aims to become the first person to swim across the Pacific Ocean from Tokyo to San Francisco. En route he'll become a one man swimming laboratory, with scientists studying how his body reacts to this extreme exercise.
In a few months, Ben Lecomte will put his flippers and his snorkel on and get into the sea in Japan.
About six months and 8200km later, he plans to emerge from the water in San Francisco - having become the first person to swim across the Pacific.
He's got previous form, too. He swam 6000km to cross the Atlantic Ocean back in 1998.
En route, he will become a one-man floating, swimming laboratory, with researchers studying how his body reacts to extreme exercise. The results will also be used to simulate the effects of long-distance space travel.

Muscles and mutations
David Epstein's amazing story about genetic mutations started with an email with the subject line "Olympic medallist and muscular dystrophy patient with the same mutation".
David Epstein is the author of The Sports Gene, which looks at the genetic basis of sporting excellence and the complex question of whether success in the sporting arena comes down to nature, nurture or something in between.
This Way Up spoke to David back in 2013, who after releasing the book, David started getting a barrage of weird and wonderful emails in his inbox – from pushy parents asking if they should genetically test their children, to coaches volunteering their athletes as human guinea pigs, to people claiming to have strange genetic mutations.
Amongst all of this email, he spotted one from a lady called Jill Viles with the unusual subject line 'Olympic medallist and muscular dystrophy patient with the same mutation'.
That's where the story really began, as he tells Simon Morton:

India's railway university
A railway university is being set up in India to improve services on India's vast but chaotic railway network. Vidhi Doshi lives and works and Mumbai.
India's railway system is vast and bustling, but it can also be unreliable, dirty and slightly chaotic.
It provides work for no less than 1.4 million people and is so important for transporting the country's people and goods around that yesterday's Rail Budget 2016, presented by the Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu, was liveblogged by the minute! The big news? No hike in passenger fares.
Meanwhile the Indian prime minister, Narendra Modi, has pledged to improve the country's railway services by setting up a specialist railway university. There will be courses in management and engineering as well as yoga lessons and training for railway staff to help make customers feel more welcome.
Despite criticism of the university, and of plans to modernise the network with a high speed train service, Mr Modi is hoping to turn India into a global centre of excellence in all things rail. Vidhi Doshi lives and works and Mumbai.

Freedom drives
Alex Gladstein is one of those behind flashdrivesforfreedom.org, a scheme to get people's old USB drives into North Korea.
Remember buying your first USB drive? The wonder of all that data on such a little portable device – no cables, no batteries – magic!
Today they're given away at conferences or as corporate gifts, and with more of us using the cloud, millions of these drives get consigned to a drawer – devalued, unused, and unloved. But they still have value to people in some parts of the world.
Alex Gladstein is working for an organisation called flashdrivesforfreedom.org that wants to collect up thousands of old USB drives and then send them to organisations led by North Korean refugees and defectors to be smuggled back into North Korea.
