"Take the poachers by the horns"
01 February 2018

"The greatness of a nation and it's moral progress can be judged by the way it's animals are treated." - Mahatma Ghandi

On the 29th of Dec 2011 I took this pic of a healthy beautiful rhino while out on a bush walk in the Kruger Park. An hour later I took this horrible pic of a poached rhino.

For my first blog post I thought I would share an extremely serious matter that lies very close to my heart. Something that thanks to media, all of you should be aware of by now. And just like you and the next person, we all want to help. Every time we see pictures of poached rhinos our hearts break. Why is this happening? What can we do to help? Can we put a stop to this? As I write this at least 339 rhinos have already been killed this year in South Africa alone. That is close to two rhinos per day. Unless we stop the demand for rhino horn in Asia, this will never end. Sadly we live in a world where money rules and everything else comes second. We need to spread the message and educate the buyers that Rhino Horn Is Not Medicine!

It warms my heart to see so many people out there who are really doing their part in the fight against Rhino Poaching. I have faith that we will not one day have to talk about the big 4 and that this beautiful animal will not only survive this battle, but that humanity will learn a valuable lesson from this cruel act. Nothing in life is untouchable. If you are one of those people who cares and would like to make a difference, please go visit this website and show them support. If you are one of those people who doesn't care, re-read my quote above. Let's Save Our Rhinos!

Rhino Force has created and is selling these super cute beaded bracelets
and funds raised will go directly towards helping to combat Rhino poaching.
