#Repost @gm4er ・・・ WORLD RHINO DAY Masisukume sakhe "Let us rise and build" KwaZulu Natal, South Africa 2017 is the bloodiest year on record in KwaZulu Natal, where in the first nine months of the year more #rhino have been slaughtered for their horns than ever before. One rhino is killed every thirty-two hours. The vast majority of killings have occurred in the flagship Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park. Poachers have turned their attention away from the #KrugerNationalPark. This could be due to increased security or sadly because of the declining numbers of available rhinos. Many arrests have been made but closer collaboration with international law enforcement agencies is essential to track down horn syndicate leaders and traffickers. Low level poachers are replaced very quickly. Provincial funding is drying up as budgets are cut.Project Rhino KZN is an association of like-minded organisations facilitating rhino conservation interventions aimed at eliminating rhino poaching and securing the white and black rhino populations in #KZN. We need to support them and the efforts of Ezemvelo's field staff and help increase the number of boots on the ground, dog units, aerial surveillance. We need to all unite in a common approach to protect our rhino. Megan Carr VP Social Media  GMFER #WorldRhinoDay #EverySingleRhinoCounts Image: Graeme Mitchley

We entered Kruger National Park on our Private Safaris through the Pafuri, Kruger National Park gate way up in the north. We will spend 8 days in the park. Magnificent! For once we can explore the amazing Kruger National Park properly. The viewing today was amazing with more Elephant than we could count. We stopped at the crossing of the Tropic of Capricorn for a quick photo with our Discovery aptly named and registered as MZURI.

feeling onboard with world rhino day. this trip to see these gentle giants of #southafrica in their home turf (and their savannah co dwellers), left me feeling a sense of wonder and awe I only remember feeling as a little girl. So incred. supporting the reserves and national parks promoting the conservancy of these incredible creatures can help combat poaching. if you can travel you must make an effort to visit Africa. #rhino #krugernationalpark #travelafrica #conservation
