ACT NOW – HELP A RHINO ON WORLD RHINO DAY
#HelpARhino is an opportunity for us all to stand up for rhinos and to show that we care about their future. Together we can all get directly involved with helping to protect this iconic species.
On average, over 2 rhinos are killed every day
We must stop the slaughter
Time to act to #HelpARhino
HELP US RAISE AWARENESS FOR RHINOS
Get involved. Here’s what you can do to #HelpARhino:
WHY DO WE NEED TO HELP A RHINO?
Rhinos are being poached for their horn at an unsustainable rate, to serve the demands of China and Vietnam, the largest importers of rhino horn. South Africa, home to the largest number of rhinos in the world, lost over 1,000 rhinos last year, leaving the population number perilously low.
HOW MANY RHINOS ARE LEFT IN THE WILD?
White rhino – 20,000-22,000, near threatened
Black rhino – 5,000 to 5,500, critically endangered
Greater one horned rhino – 3,300-3,600, vulnerable
Sumatram rhino – less than 100, critically endangered
Javan rhino – 67, critically endangered
Without focused help, rhino numbers could plummet further. A species that has roamed the planet for 50 million years should, surely, be revered and safeguarded for future generations to enjoy. That they may go extinct in our lifetime is a tragic reality.
