This is a group for anyone who wants to be involved with saving the Rhinos and other animals like Elephants from poaching.

The rhino poaching epidemic in Southern Africa has got to the point where we ... every one of you will be able to do a lot more - together - to help our rhinos. We Must Do Everything We Can to Stop It. Sadly, there are millions of humans who want to see rhinos dead. Most of them are in the Far East. Humans who think the horn of the white or black rhino can be ground down and ingested to improve their sex lives, cure cancer or ward off evil spirits. Humans who are prepared to pay heavily-armed poachers to shoot and maim these animals, hack off their horn (while they are alive) and ship it half way around the world to China. It's the new drug trade in Africa, a multi-million dollar industry that commands $65,000 a kilo for rhino horn. An average rhino horn is about 5kg. It's not hard to do the math. 90% of the Rhino population have been poached.

After I ran the 2013 San Diego Safari Park Half Marathon where I placed 2nd in fundraising for the Rhinos - this has become my passion.

In October 2014 I went to South Africa and volunteered with orphaned rhinos.

If you are an animal lover, protector and believe in animal rights please join this group - together we can help fight this crisis - the war is not over.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
