If you care about endangered animals that are hunted for their parts, here’s something important you should keep in mind: make sure you scrub the GPS data on the images prior to sharing them online. Poachers have reportedly been turning to geotagged photos on social networks in order to find out where they can make their next kill.
A photograph that has recently been making the rounds on the Web shows a sign that has been put up at an undisclosed reserve. It reads:
Please be careful when sharing photos on social media. They can lead poachers to our rhino
Turn off geotag function and do not disclose where the photo was taken
