Christmas Dreams

Peace love and rhinos

I’m dreaming of a peaceful Christmas

even if the moon is full.

I’m dreaming of a cloudy night and starless sky

for the rangers down below.

I’m dreaming of the light of change

To fill the darkest of a man’s heart,

With compassion and wisdom

Before the killing even starts.

I’m dreaming of a silent night

Where the vets don’t get that call,

Where both rhinos and people can sleep soundly,

For peace to creatures one and all. 

                                                   by: T. Wardlow

To all rangers, vets, caretakers, and our supporters-

Merry Christmas!

Only 3 rhinos left?!

Here’s a little clarity with the  “last white rhinos”…

There are five species of rhinos:

  • Javan
  • Sumatran
  • Greater one-horn (or Indian)
  • Black
  • White

Within the white rhinos species, there are two subspecies: the Northern whites and the Southern whites.

There are no more than 20,000 SOUTHERN white rhinos left in Africa. However, poaching has taken a quicker toll on the NORTHERN whites. With the recent passing of Nola, the northern white rhino at the San Diego Zoo, there are now only 3 Northern white rhinos left on the planet.

The remaining three are under constant guard at Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya.

LAST DITCH EFFORT FOR THE SPECIES

A few weeks ago, 6 southern white rhinos were flown from Africa to San Diego, California as part of an attempt to re-populate the northern white rhinos.

The plan involves implanting an embryo of a northern white rhino into a southern white. Researchers estimate it could take 10-15 years for the project to bear a successful birth.

We proudly support Ol Pejeta Conservancy and their protection of not just the remaining Northern white rhinos, but as part of one of the most successful black rhino sanctuaries in east Africa.

Please consider purchasing an ornament, a piece of art, making a donation or remember us when using Amazon smile. 100% of profits benefit Ol Pejeta, the Black Mambas, or one of our individual conservation campaigns.

Spare a thought for the Rangers

No church services or egg hunts for rangers today. These men and women are in the bush protecting our rhinos and elephants.

Poaching rates soar over holidays, combined with the ill-timed full moon this weekend, they have their hands full.

Our thoughts and hearts are with them today, and everyday. Be safe friends!
