Description

It is no overstatement to say that the publication in 2012 of the book ‘Killing for Profit: Exposing the Illegal Rhino Horn Trade’ was a transformational piece of investigative journalism.

The author, Julian Rademeyer, South African born and resident, risked his own life, after being threatened by traffickers in both South Africa and Laos, to uncover the murky world of the illegal rhino horn market that previously had been shrouded in rumour, myth, fact and fiction.

2014 is the third year that the Marjan-Marsh Award has been given to a person for making an outstanding contribution to conservation in areas of conflict; it is supported by the Marsh Christian Trust in conjunction with the Marjan Centre for the Study of Conflict and Conservation within the Department of War Studies at King’s College, London. 

In giving the Marjan-Marsh Award to Julian Rademeyer the elements of working in personal danger and insecure environments as well as overall impact, were especially noted.

The award will be given to Julian on November 4th when he will also give a talk about the ‘rhino wars’ which will include observations about the latest situation: the talk is open to the general public and represents a unique chance to hear not only about one of the most high-profile and emotional issues in conservation today but also from the perspective of a knowledgeable ‘insider’.
