we've got signatures, help us get to 1,500 by February 27, 2013
The black rhino now has less than 2,500 of its kind left in the world. This has dropped off drastically from the 65,000 existent in 1970. 90% of the species was killed off in the 70s. These animals weigh around 3,850 pounds each and have horns worth $50,000 (£31619) each. Hunters kill them for their horns. Although this is illegal, greed wins out over moral rights. The horns are made of keratin. Look at your fingernails. Your hair. Now a rhino horn. It's made of the same stuff. But anyway, a rhino is the #1 most endangered species in the world. We can help end that by signing this petition.
