The authors argue that while military intervention to prevent rhino poaching may provide short to medium terms gains, these have to be considered against the likely medium to long term costs of military activity on people. Financial and socio-economic costs are likely to be significant and may even threaten the sustainability of conservation areas. The authors suggest that a multi-pronged approach is necessary to combat poaching.
