Traditionally Spring Day has always been a happy day when we wear bright, positive colours to mark the end of winter. However, this Spring Day, 1 September 2011, we would like to be different.
As South Africans we are invited to all wear black and to tie a black ribbon to the right hand mirror of our vehicles or motorbikes. The idea is to symbolise the following:
– We are fed-up with poachers and the leniency showed in their prosecution and sentences including affording them bail.
– In memory of ABSA, one of the rhinos that was murdered at Aquila Game Reserve last week, and all of the other Rhino that are being senselessly killed for their horns.
– To show the BLACK future of our Rhino population if more is not done by the Government and us, the public, to put a stop to poaching.
Please spread the word and join this campaign. You can even add a Rhino Poaching PicBadge to your profile pics for the month of September.
Let’s make sure that our treasured and beautiful rhinos have a safe future, and that senseless murders like the one of ABSA below, don’t continue. Lets help our Rhino Be Horny.
Rhino Horn is not medicine! Let’s work together to save our Rhino!
