Save The Rhino

SAVE THE RHINO




2012 has started on a sad note for the Rhinos of South Africa. January has just begun and already a total of 11 rhino carcasses have been found.

"Despite increased law enforcement efforts, rhino poaching accelerated in South Africa last year. The country lost 448 rhinos to poaching in 2011, official government statistics reveal. The total includes 19 critically endangered black rhinos, of which fewer than 5,000 remain in the wild. In 2010, 333 South African rhinos were killed by poachers, nearly three times the number killed in 2009." WWF . For more information from WWF South AFrica, click here

One of the reasons for this unthinkable act of cruelty, is the increasing demand for rhino horns in Asia. This is becasue of the misconception that rhino horns, a luxury item, can be used as a cure for cancer and other illnesses ??? NOT TRUE



This NEEDS to STOP!

Lend your voice to this cause, sign the Wilderness Foundation Petition

Dont you want your children and grandchildren to be able to see a rhino in real life rather then hear tales about it?



TOGETHER, WE CAN HELP STOP RHINO POACHING
