Repost from @youth4africanwildlife - Our 2016 interns wrote an article about lack of security at Kruger National Park's gates and very little visible policing inside the park. Sadly, this article confirms their observation. Read more: http://www.sapeople.com/2017/03/27/kruger-finds-16-dead-rhino-reveal-poachers-entered-gates-guests/ #rhino #krugernationalpark

Link in my bio. Please sign the petition asking President Jacob Zuma to give presidential protection to the last great tusker elephants. - Repost from @gm4er - URGENT ACTION: Petition by Friends of the Kruger Tuskers GMFER stands with other organizations that REJECT the Timbavati application to hunt a Tusker elephant and demands that the Department of Environmental Affairs “review the ethics of a hunting economy that targets already endangered wildlife.” PLEASE S*I*G*N and S*H*A*R*E! https://secure.avaaz.org/en/petition/South_African_President_Jacob_Zuma_Presidential_Protection_for_All_Tuskers_Emerging_Tuskers_Elephants/?fPoQJab The #KrugerNationalPark and the Association of Private Nature Reserves have approved a permit for private game reserves to kill 34 #elephants including an iconic “trophy” bull as noted by Friends of the Kruger Tuskers. “…the hunting quota application by these reserves includes 34 elephants (including a super tusker), 2 #whiterhinos, 2 #lions, 2 #leopards (despite a national moratorium on hunting leopards), 1 #giraffe, 10 #hippos, and other species for a total of 5400 individuals. It also requests the capture of 30 white rhino and eight hippos” (Friends of the Kruger Tuskers). We agree with all concerned citizens of #SouthAfrica and all over the world who call upon the South African National Parks and the provinces of Mpumalanga and Limpopo (LEDET) to WITHHOLD the approval of this permit. Rather than SLAUGHTERING the animals in the name of sport, the non-humans are better left alive for people to enjoy seeing the animals alive in their natural habitat. Shoot with CAMERAS – NOT guns! #GMFER #MarchAgainstExtinction #OneVoice #OneWorld #Justice4Earth #Justice4All #photooftheday
