Hope Floats

Christmas is a time to believe in miracles; a time of hope, faith and love. Please carry that with you as you go forth and spread the word about the war on poaching. Rhinos and elephants are poached at an alarming rate (2 a day for rhinos and 80 a day for elephants), and their future is uncertain. But, they are still here. And while they fight to survive, we must fight for them.

If little Ntombi had the courage to fight the poachers away from her mom, then the determination to fight for survival after those same poachers turned on her with machete attacks, who are we not to keep fighting for her? (Ntombi’s story)

Little Kiliguni, the orphan elephant, found dehydrated , wandering alone through the savanna after his mother was poached, tail bitten off, and chunks taken out of his ears from the hyenas who came to feast on his mother’s poached body. He was resilient! Joining the other orphans, forming new familial bonds, and overcoming the odds. Who are we not to take on that spirit and soldier on for others like him? (Kilanguni’s story)

And the most phenomenal miracle of all: Miss Thandi. Poached, her face hacked open, blood loss, yet still trying to stand, telling us she wasn’t done yet. Treated again and again and again for her wounds, now pregnant! Fighting to survive and to carry on, now gifting the world with another life. How dare anyone give up hope now? If Thandi can carry on, have the will, the strength to persevere, we MUST persevere as well. (Thandi’s story)

These animals fought for their lives, they are sending us the message they want and need to carry on. We must balance the scales, and help them not just to survive, but to thrive. The dream of seeing a crash of rhino in the wild or a giant heard of elephants marching through the savana-it can come true. It will if we unite and work toward this.

Do not give up.

Merry Christmas Rangers: Please take a moment to thank them!

Rhino Friday holiday

While we’re eating turkey and opening gifts around a tree in our cozy homes, rangers are standing guard in the bush ready to fight. These men and women put their lives on the line every day to protect our rhinos and elephants from the evil clutches of poachers.

A few months ago, there was a letter writing campaign to “thank a ranger”. What better time to do it again, than at Christmas!Please take a moment to give them hope and inspiration. Let them know how much they mean!

Please go to the SANParks facebook page and post your messages of support and well wishes for the holiday and the new year.
