“No one can say for certain when African rhinos first began to inhabit the forests and plains of Mozambique — but we do know when their reign there ended. Conservationists say that the nation’s remaining 15 rhinos were found dead last month, butchered by poachers and robbed of their horns.”
Can the U.S. just sneak over there in the night and rescue any animals left? Obviously Africa could care less what happens to them. 😦

About D.Dinius

I am big on education, animals, and nature. So following that sentence I think it's important to be smart and animals and nature bring clarity and a calmness to things. I am new to actually paying attention and having opinions. This has been building well for about the last year. :)

  1. #%$@&#*$* As much as I dislike the idea of Zoo’s, I would like to see a reserve made for species like this so we can keep a better eye on the population and not lose an entire species. Obviously reserves in Africa are not working for this animal so where else can we foster such a creature?

    • (LOL to your expletive!) Agreed. reserve’s would be much better than death. But I would then worry that the borders of them would hardly stop the poachers as well as give them an address of where to go to find what they’re looking for. 😦 Though a hidden reserve makes an interesting thought. Like what if they could build an underground one and try to re-create the outdoors as much as possible? Though air would be the most tricky I suspect. In a perfect world there would be something that would make poaching unnecessary. But from things I see, the people of Africa aren’t doing so well and will do things not so kosher to get money they think they need. Yet another reason the monetary system needs to take a hike. 😦
