We have all seen the devastating images of rhino slaughtered by poachers as part of a global chain and network of the illicit and illegal trade in rhino horn. After the slaughter, all that is left is a denuded carcass and all too often the sight of a traumatised and orphaned calf.
While rhino horn has no medicinal or intrinsic value, its trade and consumption forms part of a global web of excess, corruption, money laundering, violence, exploitation, and dependency. The net effect is that while international syndicates, accumulate unimaginable wealth from the sale of rhino horn, local African communities are drawn into webs of criminality and the species is threatened with extinction.
We are committed to their conservation but we need partners and we need funding. We need you.
