R IS FOR RHINOCEROUS

The rhinocerous species is under siege in this country for they are being decimated by unscrupulous poachers who kill them for their horns. The demand for these is fuelled from markets abroad. Local inhabitants were delighted when two rhino poachers were caught virtually red-handed in our town last year – we continue to hope that more will be brought to book.

Many schools and organisations around the country are involved with raising funds for the protection and care of rhinos along with creating an awareness of both their importance and their vulnerability. Here is an example of one of them.

On a more personal level, this birthday cake is a fine example of how youngsters are taking the message of rhino conservation to heart.
