Channel 5

Prepare for a gripping and eye-opening final episode of “The Great Rhino Robbery: Hunting the Hunters” on Sky Documentaries. Airing on Friday, 5th January 2024 at 9.00pm, this captivating documentary delves into the world of rhino poaching and the global efforts to combat this devastating crisis.

As the demand for rhino horns continues to rise, the world’s media finally wakes up to the severity of the rhino crisis. Poaching rates soar, leaving Steve Galster and the South African police struggling to stem the flow of rhino horns to Asia. Just when hope seems lost, a pivotal moment occurs – a South African investigator receives an unexpected email from a courageous whistle-blower. This individual confesses to being a vital cog in one of the Asian gangs responsible for the ruthless and illegal killing of dozens of rhinos each month.

Driven by this new lead, Steve and the police strive to disrupt this criminal network before their rhino slaughter spirals out of control. Simultaneously, in Europe, the notorious Rathkeale Rovers find themselves running out of museum rhino horns and turning to other antiquities. However, a surge of high-profile thefts thrusts them into the spotlight. Europol analyst John Reid collaborates closely with Scotland Yard, pooling their valuable intelligence to assemble a formidable taskforce dedicated to tracking down the Rovers.

As detectives in South Africa and the UK close in on their targets, the alarming demand for rhino horn shows no signs of abating, causing poaching levels to skyrocket. While law enforcement agencies have made significant strides in curbing the worst excesses of the criminal trade, rhinos remain an endangered species. Shockingly, it is suspected that one rhino is poached every 16 hours. The combined efforts of numerous countries and countless conservationists are now united in the fight to save these majestic creatures. However, until the financial value of rhino horns is diminished, the criminal threat will persist.
