I hope they are successful. Would be tragic to lose them.

They need to try a damn side harder - saw in the newspaper 2 rhino poachers received huge sentences - do you call 10 years a huge sentence!!!! They should have been necklaced in one of the kangaroo courts! And our idiotic government needs to pull their finger on this one as well instead of worrying about filling their own coffers! It has become worse than a nightmare now!

Rhinos are so beautiful and their just like elephants in terms of body but obviously no trunk and a horn instead and they look so serious unlike elephants who look naughty and playful but majestic at the same time. But rhinos need to be saved.

This is a never ending cycle and if it doesn't stop then we will be without these wonderful creatures. Thank you.

Rhinos are incredible. Anyone seen how they will nuzzle up to a hippopotamus?

it's on
"Rhino Hippo date"
Rhinos just have to be saved and protected. All wildlife is precious and vital to our world and have a right to be left alone!

If the local South Africans had made an all out attempted to save their Rhinos
at the beginning of the poaching, the situation wouldn't have gotten to this extreme.
I salute the Lion Guardians, a program developed in communities in Southern Kenya to
recruit young Maasai Warriors who facilitate co-existence of wild lions and humans.
They intervene in any conflicts with herds, losses of livestock, report and track dwindling
lions, protect and prevent lion hunting. The destruction of the Rhinos could have been
avoided if so intensely scrutinized.

Something needs to be done about this atrocity. It sickens me to see a beautiful animal become extinct. Greed is the heart of evil.
