A note on Rhinos...

August 08, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Last week was very busy, unpacking from the trip and sorting out the photos. It's always great to spend time out in the wilderness and see how much work and effort is going into the conservation of our parks and reserves and the wildlife they try to protect. 

One of the most iconic conservation symbols is of course the Rhino and the time, passion, effort and incredibly hard work put in to protect these magnificent and somewhat grumpy individuals against an army of well-funded, armed and ruthless idiots that will stop at nothing to decimate the population in the pursuit of the almighty dollar is an inspiration to see. 

The poachers come in armed to the teeth with no morals or scruples and those charged with the protection of the wildlife simply cannot match what is being thrown at them and are effectively putting their lives on the line with every anti-poaching patrol they do, so to be able to visit the sanctuaries and view the Rhinos going about their lives safely for the moment is an opportunity not to be missed.
