World Rhino Day!
Today is World Rhino Day! In celebration of this lovely animal, make your contribution to an organization of your choice (like World Wildlife Fund) or even just talk about the issue to a friend. Right now we are averaging a rhino killed every 20 hours and the Javan and Sumatran rhinos in Asia are nearly extinct.
These wonderful animals are meeting a horrible demise at the hands of poachers and all for what…a horn. Please spread the word about rhino conservation because your interest keeps them on our planet. If you’re interested in learning more go to http://www.rhinos.org/ or check out my documentary on rhino poaching and the patrol men who are risking their lives to save them.
Algy Celebrates World Rhino Day 2012
Algy loves rhinoceroses. To celebrate World Rhino Day he invited some very special friends for a quiet holiday in the West Highlands, far away from harm.
