Brutal action of criminal organizations in South Africa in search of rhino horn. Much of the “merchandise” is exported to countries in Asia where demand is great. Products are made using the powder horn because people believe it is an aphrodisiac.
South Africa is home to 83% of Africa’s rhinos and 73% of all wild rhinos worldwide and is an incredibly important country for rhino conservation. However rhino poaching has reached a crisis point, and if the killing continues at this rate, we could see rhino deaths overtaking births in 2016-2018, meaning rhinos could go extinct in the very near future.
However, there is hope; penalties for rhino poaching are becoming increasingly severe and frequent. Figures released by the South African Department of Environmental Affairs, show an increasing number of rhino related arrests over the past few years. Law enforcement plays a crucial role in deterring poachers, however there is no single answer to combat the current poaching crisis. A multi-faceted approach is required including ongoing anti-poaching and monitoring patrols, community conservation and environmental education schemes, captive breeding, translocations and demand reduction projects in Asia.

the tortures they go through to “learn” all those “tricks” is absolutely terrifying and inhumane. Please do boycott circuses that use animals! :(

This breaks my heart, who the fuck would do that
Go after what you want now because living with regret sucks ass. You have a fear that you might fail or get rejected? Who cares? It’s temporary. You’re going to miss out on a lot of things in your life if you decide not to do them because you fear that you may end up failing.
