There’s a lot going on with poachers the last couple of weeks. As usual the justice system could use some “encouragement” to do their jobs effectively. It is crucial we join together in signing the following petitions. And for those naysayers who think petitions aren’t enough-go ahead and sit on your hands and let it pass you by. For the rest of you-take every opportunity to make your voices heard and save our rhino!
Remember the words of Dr. William Fowlds, ‘Make a commitment to do one thing every day for rhinos, even if it is just a tweet or a post – if not a day then a week’.
Time is of the essence-On Sept 29, Monday-Hugo Ras and his co-conspirators are counting on getting bail. They are confident they will beat the system as they have done before. These people are responsible for multiple rhino deaths.
Three SANParks employees were arrested for their involvement in rhino poaching. The ONLY thing lower than a poacher-someone entrusted with rhino protection who betrays them!
When the elusive poaching kingpin Chemlong Lemtongthai was finally apprehended and sentenced with 40 years, it set the precedent by sending a strong message of intolerance to poachers. Yet then it was reduced to 30 years. And now, an additional reduction was given of just 13 years! This is a slap in the face to rhinos and conservationists everywhere!
Please sign, share and let’s put these evil people where they belong-IN JAIL-away from rhinos, away from people.
