Save Africa's Wildlife From Poaching!

South Africa has laws that protect the rhinoceros from illegal poaching. Unfortunately, these laws have been difficult, sometimes impossible to enforce because the country's wide open spaces are so vast, they cannot be effectively monitored by a few wildlife rangers. By some estimates, a rhino is killed every six hours by gangs that sell the animal's horn on the black market.New technology that detects poaching offers the best hope for saving endangered mega-fauna like the South African rhinoceros. The Real-time Anti-Poaching Intelligence Device (RAPID for short) can be fitted directly on to the rhino where it reports on his or her location. The device also features a video camera which can and will record any efforts to poach the animal.Please join me in asking Phumuzile Catherine Ngwenya-Mabila, Chairperson of the Committee on Rural Development and Land Reform, and Jackson Mphikwa Mthembu, Chairperson of the Committee on Environmental Affairs, to immediately deploy RAPID and ensure that every South African rhino is wearing one.
