Save The Rhino's. Stop Poaching

Rhino poaching has escalated in recent years and is being driven by the demand for rhino horns in Asian countries, particularly Vietnam. It is used in Traditional Chinese Medicine but more and more commonly now it is used as a status symbol to display someone’s success and wealth. As South Africa is home to the majority of rhinos in the world it is being heavily targeted by poachers, see poaching numbers in South Africa. However, poaching is now a threat in all rhino range states and field programmes are having to investment heavily in anti-poaching activities. In the years 2007 to 2012 1,429 rhinos have been killed by poachers. Please help stop this senseless poaching by signing my petition.
