POP SINGLE HIGHLIGHTS RISK TO ANIMAL CHARITIES
DURING HUMAN LOCKDOWN
Crimson Medici special recording of #1 song* ‘Survivor’
offers UK lifeline to Africa’s rhinos
A special re-recording of the number 1 song, Survivor, featuring haunting strings and piano accompaniment has been released by UK Electro duo, Crimson Medici. All streaming, YouTube and sales royalties are being donated to wildlife charity Helping Rhinos.
Helping Rhinos works closely with passionate and dedicated partners, both internationally and on the ground, in the heart of rhino habitats, which is being targeted by illegal poachers to feed a black market. The concern of the band echoes that of many conservationists that the current stay-at-home advice has understandably relegated wildlife conservation in the minds of a largely-sympathetic UK public.
Public donations directly contribute to projects to care for orphaned rhinos, support anti-poaching patrols and help the monitoring and growth of black and white rhino populations. Together they help to provide a sustainable future for all species of rhino.
"We are delighted to support Helping Rhinos. Both Wendy King and I are huge animal lovers and support their conservation efforts. Having seen and followed the work of Helping Rhinos it was a great chance to provide assistance to them in protecting these amazing animals in their natural habitat."
'Survivor" is available to watch, stream or download from the following sites:
Helping Rhinos Trustee, Stuart Clarke said "We are excited to announce the collaboration with Crimson Medici. We feel the lyrics capture the incredible spirit and survival instinct of our rhinos and those working in conservation. We are also delighted to be able to share some incredible footage in the music video, which takes you on the survival journey of Thandi and many of our other rhinos".
