Prayers for rhinos

Last week , Unite against Poaching had the privilege of talking to a group of young people in Skukuza about the rhino poaching crisis facing us all. These primary school children were so enthusiastic and committed to doing all they can to help in the fight against Poaching. The meeting was hosted in the actual church in Skukuza staff village.

Their cheerful voices singing praise were an awe inspiring background to the image of a life size rhino standing at the alter in their church.  The poignancy of the image that our rhinos may need divine intervention to survive did not escape us. Hearing these young voices singing and seeing their passion and dedication to this fight against poaching was a true inspiration.

This fight against poaching and has been taken up by racial groups across the spectrum, encompassing the various religious convictions and social groups.  We certainly do need to make our voices heard and remain vigilant to any suspicious activity. Together we can certainly make a difference.

This visit, to the centre of the poaching crisis, speaking to children whose very lives are affected by the poaching crisis every day, has certainly made me so much more determined to intensify efforts to make a difference wherever we can.
