A Rhino Kind of Love

Lions are majestic
Elephants have a certain grace,
But I prefer the shorter pachyderms
with the stoic face.

Cheetahs are poetry in motion
Zebras-a fixture on the veldt,
But it’s the fur-lined “lily” ears
that make my heart melt.

Rhinos are gentle giants
self-assured & wrinkled with attitude,
there are none quite so impressive
both in crash or solitude.

From the tufted tail
to the tip of that impressive horn,
I pledge my loyalty
to Africa’s unicorn.

-Tisha Wardlow

Fighting for Love

What is love?

Shot in the chest. Panic, fear, and intense pain engulfs her. Her first  instinct is to run blindly; quickly stumbling through the bush trying to find somewhere safe, some relief for the immensity of the pain. 

But not too fast, not too far. For her heart and other instincts won’t let her stray far from the little one running at her side. She  slows to check  to be sure he is ok. He needs her. She will give her life for him.

Unable to keep going, she slows and falls. Her strength is just not there.  Before her last breath she feeds and nuzzles him…
THIS is love. THIS is what poaching is destroying. THIS is what we’re fighting for. 

13, Feb, Hoedspruit:The rhino cow was shot in the lung, rangers followed the trail of blood, it was too late to help her. The frightened little calf, yet another poaching victim has been sent to an orphanage.

Another day, another poaching; yet a new tragedy for this baby, and this mother. Help us fight for them and stop the killings.
