Africa Geographic's "Stop Killing Rhinos" Petition

In South Africa a rhino is brutally killed every 22 hours. The time for action is now!

Africa Geographic’s petition to the Vietnamese* Ambassador to South Africa demands that the illegal trade in - and killing of - rhinos is stopped. The Vietnamese use rhino horn in traditional medicine and the aim of our petition is to destroy the market for the horn and, with it, the incentive to poach.
Sign the petition here!

* With the shift in rhino horn trade patterns over the past few years, Vietnam has emerged as the leading destination for illicit trade in rhino horn. Read this newsletter from the International Rhino Foundation for more background information.
