Don’t let rhinos become one of the dinosaurs

Put the ‘kind’ back in ‘mankind’-unknown

“The illegal wildlife trade threatens not only the survival of entire species, such as elephants and rhinos, but also the livelihoods and, often, the very lives of millions of people across Africa who depend on tourism for a living” Yaya Toure

Do you know that world Rhino day is celebrated on 22nd September every year?

There are 5 species of rhinos.

  1. White Rhino
  2. Great one Horned Rhino
  3. Black Rhino
  4. Sumatran Rhino
  5. Javan Rhino

4 of the 5 species remaining are threatened with extinction.

This is happening because of poaching (fewer than 12,000 rhinos remain in the world)

There is a growing demand for rhino horns.

The main consumers are said to be from people in China and Vietnam, as a status symbol or for medicinal values which include treatment for impotence.

You name the disease, it can be cured by rhino horn preparations, a false narration popularised among the population.

There is no scientific evidence to prove that rhino horn has medicinal value.

Human greed has crossed the limits.

“When a child kills an animal for fun, we fear mental illness. When an adult with the capacity to reason does it, we call it “sport” Seth MacFarlane


“There are more dangerous humans on Earth than dangerous animals” Anthony Douglas William

What are your thoughts, my friend?

Do you approve of unwanted killings?

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

  1. I agree with you wholeheartedly. Killing animals for sport is not something that should be tolerated. It’s one thing when there is overpopulation, but this is clearly not the case. Thank you for sharing this very important topic for PPAC. 🙂


    1. My friend the answer is simple.
      Modern medicine can’t cure 100% psycological related diseases( impotence for example).
      So they try other alternatives and belief system is the culprit.
      The species are endangered only because of these crazy ‘ belief system’.
