In 2009 there was a dramatic increase in rhino poaching with 135 animals killed, and in 2010 an even more staggering 333 animals were brutally slaughtered for their horns - and recently more than 448 were killed or injured following a poaching attack in 2011. The war against our rhinos has been waged! It's time for us to rise up and fight back. Hope now lies in communities, organisations, governments and individuals working together towards saving our iconic wildlife. It is our duty to win the rhino war and set an example of what South Africans can achieve if we rally together behind a common cause.
