The fact is that Rhinos are being targeted for their horns which are ground in to powder and used for medicinal purposes and as an aphrodisiac in the East. Over 280 Rhinos have been illegally slaughtered in South Africa since the beginning of this year. We are the ones who put them in their enclosures so if we really care about their species it’s time we stood up and did something drastic. Some people take the view that if an animal attacks a human it is shot because it is wild and dangers, but then surely the same measures should be taken with the poachers who are violently and barbarically killing these innocent animals?
Luckily, this time around the government is making an effort by developing and spending money on anti-poaching schemes. There are so many causes to be a part of, but when it comes to preserving these magnificent animals it is not possible to turn a blind eye. Another company who’s efforts have raised significant funds to help save the Rhinos is Woolworths. Take a look at the clip and maybe today could be the day you buy your rhino bag and support their efforts to help stop Rhino poaching in South Africa.
