World Rhino Day 2012

World Rhino Day is an initiative that brings NGOs, zoos, rhino sanctuaries, and concerned citizens across the globe together to raise awareness and funds for the five species of rhinoceros — all of which are under threat from the illegal rhino horn trade. World Rhino Day was initiated by WWF in 2010 and has since become a global phenomenon.

In celebration of the World Rhino Day 2012, the Department of Environmental Affairs made a renewed call for action by all South Africans against the ongoing scourge of rhino poaching, ahead of the third annual World Rhino Day on the 22 September 2012.
