Save the Rhinos by WhiteBook Save the Rhinos by WhiteBook
You can always build another Taj Mahal,” artist and conservationist David Shepherd once said, “But you can never build another rhino.”

The rhino is being hunted into extinction and could disappear forever unless we act now. Shocking new statistics show 440 rhinos were brutally killed last year in South Africa alone -- a massive increase on five years ago when just 13 had their horns hacked off.

What I heard it's not south African people that are killing the Rhinos, it's the neigbours that hasn't any concioucess about all the damages they do and only think in money. thanks for you concern :hug:

A White Rhino. The Arabs want the horn for their daggers, and the Chinese want the horn to get the horn. They should use viagra instead.

Very true, it's a pity that people don't have conscience of the damages they do by money or sexuality. Thanks so much for comment :heart:
