    We need your help in SA please

    Ok this is a plea of help and to spread the word. Those that can help I thank you and for those that can't I understand.

    As wildlife is very dear to my heart and as I live in South Africa we are having a losing battle.

    The battle about our rhinos that are killed into extinction. And we have one nation to blame - China. Why? Cause they believe that the rhino horns they slaughter of our animals are for erection purposes and it's a myth. So they are sending businessmen and hunters to hunt in our conservation areas to kill these precious animals, unique to SA. They are part of our big 5 and soon they will be gone.

    They have killed 450 in 2011 and this year alone from Jan already 200. And some females that are pregnant, yes they slaughter her stomach to get the baby and then leave the little one to die. All the rhinos are not killed but darted or shot to bleed to death as they slaughter the horns and they leave them to bleed, after cutting of their horns.

    I have added info regarding who is behind this as it's a market for BIG money and also added a petition. Please sign it as our government need to wake up and smell the roses. They are big friends with China, the money market. Using call girls to smuggle them to China. Luckily we have caught some of the peeps behind this, but not jailed. Just pay some money (rhino money) and their gone. Even if I can bring this to your attention I did my part.
    I am busy with a painting of this precious animals that I am gonna donate.

    So here is the links, petition. Just sign the petition please.
    If possible I will appreciate all as not alot outside SA knows about this issue:

    The Chinese are responsible for many animals in the world being pushed to extinction as the tigers, bears and many other animals are also killed for the stupidity of these ignorant people who want glands, testicles, paws and bones from various animals to satisfy their need for medicinal remedies and potions already proven a farce... and they can't even tell fake from real.

    If they want what rhino horns are made from, just collect the fingernails of humans and grind those up as it's the same damn thing. Then you take the abject poverty of so many in South Africa that much of the world refuses to talk about and you have a situation destined for self destruction. What the hell are they going to use when the rhino's are extinct? They don't know and they don't care about that which is the true merit of their ignorance and stupidity.

    South Africa is currently regarded as the rape capital of the world and one, if not "the", most crime ridden countries in the world. Apartheid began in 1948 and ended in 1994 yet western powers made it look as if it had existed for centuries and much as it had done during the civil rights movement in the US, made a lot of promises to help South Africa when Apartheid ended they didn't keep. When it ended, these people slapped one another on the backs and walked away breaking almost every promise and leaving South Africa to rebuild under corrupt leadership which proved too strong so that in many ways, it was as if Apartheid never ended or times were better when Apartheid existed. This is a nation where violence and crime are rampant everywhere as people are desperate. Amira herself can tell you how they cut phone lines to steal the copper and sometimes cut into power lines by mistake or are shot dead by police because there's no room to lock them up.

    What does the extinction of rhino's mean to people starving to death? The rhino's need protected but if it weren't for the ignorance of the Chinese and desperation of the poor in South Africa, this wouldn't be happening. It's reached a point where the only way to stop it is capital punishment sentencing the Chinese and South Africans doing this to death as live rhino's bring millions into the South African tourist economy and no more rhino's means people across the world would look at South Africa with contempt planning their vacations elsewhere.

    If you do not confront the leaders in South Africa and China to do more, then the rhino's will become extinct over their horns... what a tragedy that will be and the even greater tragedy may be that it's too late to save them even if you killed every poacher and every idiot in China who has anything to do with the needless slaughter.

    AB well said as it's precisely what is happening. UK has started to stand up for us and told the government that if they don't start sorting this out, they are gonna boycot us, as we are a big food export and with Africa, a hungry continent we provide alot of food outside SA. And then we are back to 18 years ago with apartheid and sanctions. So all the petitions and issues we are trying to get active, are to let the government open their eyes. But then they don't want to even help their own starving people as they only think of themselves and the gravy train. SA is known as the land of milk and honey. With all flocking to get free food, free work and free housing. But the FREE part is non existant. Apartheid in reverse unfortunately. So that is why we are pleading to make the people outside of SA see what is actually happening here as alot don't know. And yes when the rhinos are gone, where are they gonna get their fix then? The same happened with our elephants (also one of the big 5) but luckily we could stop that. But if the rhino ends, then it will be back to the elephants. And unfortunately elephants is not as easy to hunt like rhinos. Rhinos are merely blind but can hear well and when they shoot the poor animal it's too late.
