Today is World Rhino Day 2018...one of my top five fave holidays of the year. We do what we do in order to ensure that future generations will be able to celebrate World Rhino Day too. Here @streetwiseprofessor and I were honored to help assist @warnerippon @rhinorescueproject and @lorindahern in an operation they’ve developed of infusing the horn with toxins, which makes it poisonous to idiot human consumption, with no harm to the rhino. The event is highly publicized, and signs erected to inform the surrounding communities that the rhino horn has been infused. We recognize it isn’t the end-all-be-all solution, but it is simply another significant layer of deterrent that will certainly help in keeping these beasts from becoming extinct while maintaining the integrity of the rhino’s glorious horns. Lorinda, thank you for your tireless dedication to this mission...you’re an inspiration. A rhino is killed every eight hours! 1,028 rhinos were poached last year alone. It’s difficult to not see the futility in it all, but we have to do what we can, with what we have in order to keep these beauties “aliving and thriving”. Every day should be World Rhino Day, my friends ... make a difference, combat terrorism, protect animals, prevent the negative ramifications poaching has on the African economy, and contribute in any way you can. The world simply would not be the same without them ✊🏼🦏 ❤️
When your heart get cold, see what’s behind all them unturned stones
Whilst gettin’ my solivagant (#wordoftheday) patrol on in Jurassic Park, I came upon this quintessential lekka lekka Afrrrrrrica vista of a pair of majestic brontosaurus 🦕=🦒 seeking shade under an ancient baobab tree from the African sun (which is the hottest sun anywhere in the universe...it’s science...look it up). It’s moments like these when I have to remind myself of how fortunate I am to serve these beasts.
There’s just something indescribably, peaceful and powerful being in the presence of these incomparable beasts. I cannot think of two other beings on this planet who I’d rather share an African sundowner with at this moment than these two beauties. 🐘 🐘 ❤️ 🌅 ... a good night.
