Rhino poaching is reaching catastrophic levels in South Africa, and if we don’t take action quickly we could lose this vital animal for good.
Unfortunately, an increase in demand for traditional “medicine” using rhinoceros horns has fueled an increase in poaching across South Africa. Hundreds of rhinos have been killed in just the first four months of 2015 despite orders to implement new anti-poaching operations.
We can’t allow rhinos to go extinct because of human greed.
It’s time to call on the South African government for more strongly supported anti-poaching measures. Add your name today to help call for an increase in armed patrols to protect rhinos from poachers and increased penalties to deter poachers.
