Rhino Poaching: An African Tragedy. A Global Responsibility! South Africa is custodian to over 90% of the world’s rhino. In 2010 alone, 333 rhino were killed in South Africa by poachers for their horn. Already in 2011 over 149 rhino have been poached (one per day). It has been proven that the horn has no medicinal value and is not a cure for cancer. However it is still sought after and mainly in the East. The killing will only stop when the horror of it all is understood. If these images trouble you, we urge you to join thousands of others who object to the senseless killing of these rhino by signing the petition. http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/foreverwild/ This petition will be taken to the highest governmental powers and is a vital part of the lobbying campaign which is needed to change laws regarding the importation of rhino horn into foreign countries. It is only through a GLOBAL campaign and POLITICAL will that we can save this remnant of the dinosaur age – the rhino. This initiative is spearheaded by Dr Ian Player (founder) and Andrew Muir (CEO) of the Wilderness Foundation.
