In January (2013) I penned an extremely disturbing account of 'The War Against Nature' - in particular rhino poaching. Since then, the African rhino-slaughtering rampage has reached a record level.
By September 30, 2013 seven hundred and four South African rhinos were poached, eclipsing 2012s record of 688. My colleagues now predict that over 1,000 majestic rhinos will be butchered for their horns next year (2014). At this crazed rate: Rhinos will be extinct by 2022.
Over the past 113 years the human population has soared from 1.6 to 7.1 billion. Rhino numbers, on the other hand, have plummeted from 500,000 to 29,000, a 95 percent decrease. And worse, since 2007 poaching rhinos have increased by 5,000 percent.
These creatures are doomed.
I strongly encourage you to take 10 minutes and read about these marvelous, gentle giants.
The fact that the Mafia, Syndicate, Cartel and Triad's are involved heavily in killing rhinos, elephants, tigers and lions as the demand for rhino horns, elephant ivory, fur and animals parts skyrockets means these incredible beasts have no chance whatsoever to continue to live on planet Earth.
What kind of a world are we leaving for our children? More....
