Africa’s Rhinos face Poaching Crisis

By Peter Knights, Executive Director of WildAid

Izzy The Rhino

In August 2011, The Guardian reported that yet another rhino had been found killed in South Africa.  With a reported 448 rhinos poached in South Africa in 2011, this story was tragic but certainly not an anomaly.   But for the first time, the rhino had a name --  Izzy -- and a story. With the help of illustrator Steven Womack, we are proud to share the story of Izzy the Rhino with you.  

Though this story reads like a fable, parental discretion is advised.
