consider the rhino

one of the most embattled animals on the planet, because of the alleged medicinal and aphrodisiac properties of its horn. Yesterday was World Rhino Day. Dereck Joubert, a Botswana-based wildlife film-maker and conservation, wrote this appeal in Huffington Post : http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dereck-joubert/this-world-rhino-day-we-n_b_5864250.html?1411421208

Botswana is one of Africa’s few conservation success stories. A subject we will be reporting on next year, with the help of the Jouberts, a great couple dedicated to keep Africa’s incomparable wildlife with us.
