Africanamazing Team is honoured to share this golden hour rhino calf , kindly visit @rhinorescueproject where they’ve been working on devaluing Rhino horn #worldrhinoday.
In the last decade, 8,889 African rhinos have been lost to poaching.The current rhino poaching crisis began in 2008, with increasing numbers of rhino killed for their horn throughout Africa until 2015. Thankfully, there has been a decrease in the number of rhinos poached across Africa since the peak of 1,349 in 2015. Yet, two and a half rhinos are still killed every single day: there is still a lot more to do. South Africa holds nearly 80% of the world’s rhinos and has been the country hit hardest by poaching criminals, with more than 1,000 rhinos killed each year between 2013 and 2017.

Sadly Elephants 🐘🐘 🐾 🐘 in Southern Africa are being also killed at around 100 per day , Rhino and Elephant populations are under severe threat of extinction within the next ten years...Should we not drastically change the current poaching and senseless slaughter which is taking place .... 🐾 🐾 🐾 __________🐘🦏 🐾 🐾🦏 To contribute to the fight against poaching kindly visit www.stoprhinopoaching.com
