Saving the Survivors 💧On this World Rhino Day I would like to pay tribute to a South African organization called @savingthesurvivors . Saving the Survivors was founded in 2012 by veterinarian Dr Johan Marais to “attend to injured #endangeredwildlife that have fallen victim to #poaching or traumatic incidents.” Dr Marais and his team have cared for the most traumatically injured rhino, animals whose very faces have been removed by the unspeakable #cruelty of the poachers axe. These #rhino were never meant to survive but despite waking up bullet ridden and without a face, these animals have demonstrated an indescribable will to live. Dr Marais and his team help them to do exactly that, allowing these survivors come back to life despite their suffering. There are a number of worthwhile organizations in South #Africa working on the rhino crisis but today I would direct your attention towards Saving the Survivors. They open themselves up to tragedy with a breath-taking optimism, caring for animals most of us would not believe in. There is a lot of talk about the front line of #conservation; these people genuinely embody that in a unique way @brentstirton Tnx for this #Qf9989762 do you remember me babe💧can’t believe we are real

With today being #WorldRhinoDay let us acknowledge these awesome species and ask yourself how can you help to how we can ensure their survival.

Rhino numbers have declined dramatically over recent years as a result of #poaching for their horns, which is believed to have medicinal value in some Asian countries.
Facts:
- 3-4 rhinos are poached every day
- In South Africa alone during 2017 1,028 rhinos were lost to poaching
- The world has lost 95% of its #rhinos in the last 40 years

#extinction is not that far away. There are a lot of great organizations out there aimed at helping save these amazing creatures. Follow/donate/act. Here are a few organizations one can support, but there are so many more: @africanwildlifefoundation @dswt @vetpaw @savetherhinointernational @wwf @wwfafrica 🦏 #SaveTheRhino #conservation #africa #act #support #fortheanimals #rhino

While #WorldRhinoDay celebrates the protection of #rhinos around the world, it also highlights the heart-breaking dangers that they are currently facing in their natural habitat. -
-
Rhino populations are dwindling every day, threatened by #poaching & #trophyhunting which has left their species on the brink of #extinction.🦏💔
-
It is imperative that we implement stricter protection and law enforcement to protect them in order to prevent their species from going extinct in the very near future. We are in a #RaceAgainstExtinction 🙏🦏💛 -
-
Please consider making a donation to the amazing @careforwild Rhino Sanctuary to ensure their protection for future generations to come! 🙏🦏💛 #UniteTheFight #SaveRhinos

Today is #WorldRhinoDay! Started in 2010, this has become an important day not only for celebrating one of the world's most threatened species, but also for raising awareness of the #conservation challenges they face. All five #rhino species are threatened by #illegalwildlifetrade and #poaching to feed demand for rhino horn powder, which is believed by some to possess healing powers. (Quick reality check: like most "medicines" derived from animal parts, rhino horn is made of keratin, the same substance as our fingernails.) A desperate desire to protect them, among #conservationists and animal welfare advocates, has led to various measures to curb trade. At the highest levels, lobbyists are making impact at the international level by advocating for the highest protections at @CITES and other global forums, and working to decrease demand for animal products in locations where it is most prevalent. And on the ground, several measures are being taken: rangers are surveilling habitats, and controversially, some groups are dehorning rhinos (like the one seen here in South Africa), others want to farm rhinos, and still more are considering growing artificial #rhinohorn in labs. We want to know what measures you think are effective and which are not. Leave your opinions in the comments and we might just feature them here on IG! 📝&📷 by Y4WC member @tiffdegrootwildlife

Nearly three #rhinos are killed every day.
Today very few rhinos survive outside of #reserves due to #poaching and loss of #habitat over the decades. Two rhino species of #Asia—Javan and Sumatran—are critically endangered.
At the root of the rhino #crisis is the belief that rhino horn is valuable. Rhino Day celebrates all five species of rhino: Black, white, greater one-horned, Sumatran and Javan rhinos. This #RhinoDay, join us as we celebrate the five #species of rhino and work to eliminate the demand for rhino horn by efforts to debunk #beliefs about rhino horn.

Jeden Tag werden zahllose Nashörner lediglich für ihr Horn geschlachtet und illegal in verschiedenste Länder gebracht im Glauben ein Wundermittel zu sein... das Horn, welches nur für die Tiere selbst lebenswichtig ist, dezimiert die Population dieser Tiere so immens, das diese nun stark vom Aussterben bedroht sind...
Dieses Junge hat Glück und hat seine Mami noch!
Mit einer Buchung bei uns unterstützt ihr direkt auch den Schutz der Nashörner, nämlich mit dem Beitrag von CHF 10.00 pro Person, welchen wir 1:1 so direkt weitergeben... Wollt ihr mehr über den Schutz, den heutigen Weltnashorntag oder unsere Arbeit, die Arbeit vor Ort oder mal einfach mehr über diese tollen Tiere wissen? Ruft uns an oder schreibt eine E-Mail.

It’s #worldrhinoday. Here is a depressing infographic about rhino & pangolin poaching created by me and @feral_pony #justgianttoenails #extinctionisforever #poaching #pangolin #rhinoceros #endangeredspecies #artactivism

Regrann from @bos_uk - Malaysian Customs officials have thwarted an attempt by #wildlife #traffickers to use a new sea route from #Sumatra to smuggle in 435 exotic animals, including two baby #orangutans. We hope these poor #orphans are DNA tested and repatriated to a rehab centre in their country of birth asap so the healing process can begin.

Today we ‘celebrate’ #worldrhinoday. Maybe celebrate is not the right word for the day, maybe creating awareness day is a better. Creating awareness about the non-existing health benefits or magical powers of rhino horn, awareness that rhino horn is the same as yours and my hair and nails, awareness that we’re loosing our precious rhinos in a very rapid pace! Please help and create awareness, educate and explain. Only that way we can save our rhino! •Those are the few rhinos I helped and threatens after they fell victim to poaching. The first picture was a rhino who’s horn got caught in a snare, which we had to remove. The second and third picture was our recent poaching victim. And the fourth and fifth picture was a poaching victim in South-Africa, which I attended to with @savingthesurvivors. #rhino #stoppoaching #conservation #rhinoconservation #namibia check out this amazing song by Don Clarke and the Drakondale Grils Choir about rhino conservation (link in bio)
