Solidarity in South Africa!
The Cape Town event is organized by Rhino Africa, and follows on last year’s successful World Rhino Day campaign.
Ross Bowers of Rhino Africa emphasizes that the gathering is not a “protest” against Government.
We will be encouraging Government to engage more with Asian governments and markets to tackle the demand at source as well as supporting their existing initiatives on the ground in Africa.
We need constructive, co-ordinated and urgent action from Governments around the world.
Bowers notes that the campaign is an opportunity to encourage cooperation between greater Government and Private Sector to put a stop to the rhino killing epidemic.
