On Saturday, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens in Cape Town hosted the Global March for Elephants, Rhinos, and Lions to help raise awareness for our threatened wildlife. One hundred and twenty countries came together for this worldwide campaign to help save these three critically endangered species.
“More than 35,000 elephants are being killed every year so their tusks can be carved into ivory trinkets. A rhino is slaughtered once every 8 hours for its horn. Their only hope for survival lies in an immediate end to the ivory and rhino horn trade (both “legal” and “illegal”) and the chance to recover from decades of mass slaughter”.
To preserve the lives of these beautiful African creatures, the time has come to take an active role in putting an end to this slaughter trade. It will be a sad day if the only available 3d image of a rhino, is at a movie theatre.
