Although rhino poaching has decreased over the past year, other African species continue to sit high on the endangered list as a result of illegal activities. Take a look.
When it comes to food we kinda think it’s a case of ‘to each their own’. We must, however, draw the line at a massive banquet where a critically endangered animal is served up.
Rhino Poaching has become a massive issue at the forefront of our collective mind. New campaigns to protect these beautiful creatures and raise awareness of the tragedy that befalls them have erupted in the last year or so – and rightly so! But is it enough…?
