Manage episode 278295840 series 2828017
Rhinos are being brutally poached at a rate of more than three per day. We could lose this magnificent species by the middle of this century. Dr. Michael Slattery, Professor and Director of the Institute for Environmental Studies at TCU, breaks down the Rhino Crisis situation in South Africa and provides actionable ways listeners can be apart of the solution.
The TCU Rhino Initiative is a collaboration between the Institute for Environmental Studies and rhino conservationists in the Eastern Cape region of South Africa. Planet Rhino’s mission is (https://planetrhino.tcu.edu/) to keep you informed on this crisis and their efforts in the areas of protection, awareness, rescue, and community participation. Most importantly, they ask for your involvement in the fight to ensure the rhino’s long-term survival.
