World of Animals mag teams up with Ol Pejeta to save rhinos now!
Our sister magazine World Of Animals has just announced it is partnering with the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in an attempt to help combat rhino poachers in eastern Africa. While the writers of World Of Animals won’t be flying overseas to embark on a conquest of terror versus the poachers, but the magazine will be donating 10% of its worldwide profits to the campaign from issue #7 – which goes on sale today.
These endangered creatures are being unmercifully hunted, gunned down by automatic weaponry and having their precious horns harvested by poachers – their bodies left to rot in the hot African sun. We’ve played Zoo Tycoon on Xbox One, rhinos are awesome, and this is something that we can’t abide by.
Funds raised by World of Animals will help get more rangers, trackers and surveillance deployed on the ground to save the rhinos from cruel deaths motivated by greed and ignorance.
“We on the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya are thrilled and proud to be working with Imagine Publishing in the “Save Rhinos Now” campaign,” said Richard Vigne, CEO of the Ol Pejeta Conservency. “As the largest black rhino sanctuary in eastern Africa we are at the forefront of the battle to save Africa’s rhinos from extinction. To be successful we are compelled to spend huge sums of money to pay for armed anti-poaching units, and to secure the habitat that is required for healthy growing rhino populations.”
“Consequently we welcome the possibility that this campaign may assist us to raise the funds that are required to make our rhinos safe, now and for future generations.”
The Save Rhinos Now campaign kicks off in issue #7 of World Of Animals, on sale today, with a hard-hitting feature highlighting the plight of the rhino.
A dedicated section for the Save Rhinos Now campaign has also been launched on the WOA website, where you’ll be able to follow all the latest news, keep up with Ol Pejeta and donate.
