Rhino poaching is a huge problem in Southern Africa: this isn’t news. However, the outrage doesn’t seem to be getting us anywhere, as the death toll of one of Africa’s iconic species climbs ever higher. (Read: six simple ways to help end rhino poaching.) One of the ways we are trying to support rhino conservation is to raise awareness with our #RhinoFriday posts, on Facebook and Twitter.
The intention is to create dialogue and share ideas about how we can support our dwindling rhino population, and the fierce conservationists who are fighting for them (like lat year’s top five rhino charities.) Many people have also shared great photos that showcase rhinos’ unique beauty, and we thought they were too good not to share.
