Some good news about rhino's.

Post by Nev on Wed Jul 15, 2015 12:03 pm

Some good news here about how the war against poachers is being fought, which even involves our Prince Harry.

Good news for sure our Nev. Horrendous what has been going on for so many years, the killing of these innocent animals, all for their horns, is sickening. At least this will go a fair way to stop those evil poachers.

Thank you so much for sharing this information, Nev, we certainly were not aware of Prince Harry's visit to Namibia and Botswana, both being neighbouring countries of ours. His involvement with anti-poaching will hopefully go a long way to stemming the tide of poaching that we are experiencing in the region. The governments, all terribly corrupt, are not doing a thing, they prefer to cow-tail to the east and line their own pockets in the process. The wildlife in Africa, in general, is under serious threat and I am not sure, without government support, how they will stem the tide. I am hoping that the involvement of the likes of Prince Harry will nudge the governments in the region and Africa in general into action.

Considering the fact that the rhino horn is no different and the same substance as hair, someone should collect all the cuttings from the barbers shops, grind it to a fine powder and then flood the markets with it at ridiculously low prices or even free. The customers won't know any different, yet the poachers will see no profit for themselves so therefore stop the needless killing.

Just a thought.

A very good thought there our Nev. No animals then will be killed, or horrendously disfigured, being left in severe pain.

ah they so under threat. They are battling to save a Rhino called Hope, who, the thigs cut right down to her sinuses yet hope was determined to live
They have 4 vets working on her and she is at Shamwari Game reserve. 3 of the vets is Johan Joubert, Jan Marais and Will fowlds. Shamwari has an awesome rehabilitation centre
***HOPE UPDATE from SAVING THE SURVIVORS***
Great! Great! Great!! Hope is extremely active and seems to want to keep that bod of hers in tip top rhino shape! She is eating us out of house and home - which is just the way we like it smile emoticon
She is still rubbing her face, but the shield is holding by its anchor points at the top, however, it has come away at the bottom. The shield is taking a bit of a hammering and looks a little worse for wear. At this stage we are not worried about her winning any beauty competitions (although if she were we reckon she would walk away with the crown and title of Miss World Rhino edition)
We have 11 days until the next procedure and that shield has to stay in place until then! Keep the positive thoughts coming and sharing the story of this amazing animal with her amazing vets and caretakers. Thanks Megan Sinclair for the update and pictures
Where there is life there is Hope

Aw I have watched Dr Joubert on telly- a humble kind man who lives eats saving wildlife

Hope wa found on another reserve after she had been poached 4 days earlier. They could not believe she was still alive

Nev is so right they can use hair nails from humans. No they brutally hack off the horns of the rhino.
Beautiful Sophia and her calf that we saw when we stayed at Palala wa poached for their horn they both died from their injuries.. They cannot find the top dog that are supplying the poachers with that darting drug M99. The court cases going on , yet these people pay huge amounts to get out on bail.
Then you have these lovely vets that go all out to save these magnificent beasts. A group did keep their hair cut off and nails sent a huge envelope to who they think is involved but to no avail

So precious all of those vets and helpers there helping as they do our Honeybee. Hope is in the best hands for sure. Such a terrible shame as you say about Sophie and her calf, deep sadness when you heard what had happened to them. Very sad indeed, as for all those killed by the hands of those poachers.
