October 2016

President Obama Signs Anti-Wildlife Trafficking Legislation into Law.
Stamped with President Obama’s signature on October 7, 2016, this law will protect elephants, rhinos and other endangered species from a sophisticated international poaching and trafficking trade that is decimating animal populations worldwide and funding armed groups.
We are getting closer to the goal of this petition. All Rhino species, subspecies and populations fully protected by international law.
The support received is great and we are close to the 10,000 signatures target before the petition close.
Please continue to sign and share to "STOP RHINO KILLING"

It's very difficult to feel somber as we watch these baby rhinos scurrying around in the freshly cut grass. Some conservationists estimate that, unless we can do something drastic to stop the ivory trade and the murder of these innocent creatures, rhinos will be extinct in then years.

Rhino horn worth millions found at OR Tambo

The Hawks’ Serious Organised Crime Unit says it has arrested a man at OR Tambo International airport for dealing in rhino horn worth millions. The man, a Chinese national, allegedly concealed 18 horns weighing 43kg in his luggage. Unfortunately for him, however, a routine search resulted in the discovery of the illegal stash, signaling another much-needed victory for anti-rhino poaching in South Africa. The Hawks say the estimated street value of the horns is around R6,6-million. “The 28-year-old male who was in transit from Namibia to board a South African Airways flight to Hong Kong was immediately arrested,” says the SAPS. “He will appear before the Kempton Park Magistrates Court for dealing in rhino horn under the Endangered Spices Act on Friday.”
