It’s getting to be that time of the year again…the time when we start comparing stats of rhinos poached to the same time last year, praying that the numbers are less, looking for signs of a slow-down.
Regrettably, that is not the case. The number of rhinos poached will rise beyond last year’s 1,004. This is the reality.
BUT what is also the reality is…that there were 54 arrests in Kruger last month…that the facts on rhino horn and poaching are starting to spread throughout Vietnam…and that rhinos are being moved to areas of lesser poaching.
While some see the rising numbers and want to give up, we see the numbers and are spurred on to fight.
It is not time to give in. They are in peril, but they are not gone. The rhinos still need us, and we are still fighting. Fight for Rhinos and Helping Rhinos are working on some promising endeavors. But we need your help.
Unfortunately money truly does make the world go round. We can only do what your donations allow us to do. We appreciate any amount of support. If you are able to purchase an ornament or send in a donation, or even to share our cause with others who may be able to help, it will make a difference.
