At the moment, the world is going through one of the worst cases of poaching in decades.
The chinese seem to think that the rhino horn can be used as an aphrodisiac. Why not just use viagra?
These animals are becoming more and more extinct every day and not enough is being done about this.
The rhino's horns are cut off whilst the poor animal is still alive. The horn is part of the bone. They feel it. They feel everything. They then bleed to death. How could people let this happen?
More and more elephants are being killed every day. There has been a huge increase in the market for ivory. What really happens to this ivory?
The ivory is shaped and sculpted and sold, then it sits as an ornament in a family home. It gets covered and dust and slowly forgotten. One of the most intelligent, beautiful animals have died just for this moment of pleasure. Is it really worth it? Is it really worth killing an animal just to decorate your house?
We won't realise until all the animals are gone.
We won't realise until our planet is empty.
