Celebrate all five rhino species
Black, White, Greater One-Horned, Sumatran and Javan Rhinos
In South Africa, a shocking 1175 rhinos were slaughtered for their horn in 2015. Several organisations are very visible in their efforts to try curbing the illegal killing of our rhinos. By on-going efforts throughout the year, the South African Veterinary Association (SAVA) strives to create awareness and to raise funds which are used to assist veterinarians called out to poaching incidents, allowing them to treat poaching survivors to the best of their ability.
Our children, although bombarded with adverts and images of how we must save the rhino, are often unaware of the reasons for this uproar. In collaboration with the Air Force Base Waterkloof, the SAVA visited schools in Pretoria in 2014 where a veterinarian explained the difference between white and black rhino, types and small number of rhinos left in the world as well as the veterinarians’ role in saving and treating rhinos.
‘Kids love rhinos too’ colouring pictures and stickers were given to the school children. Due to the positive feedback received from schools, we decided to share these pictures with you.
Herewith, find pictures that you can print out and give to the kids. Stick the pictures on your wall to show that you care!
Feel free to contact us should you have any questions. All the information about the Vet Rhino Fund is on the SAVA website (www.sava.co.za).
