Happy World Rhino Day! I would be very interested in hearing about what you did for World Rhino Day.
There is a great organisation I would like to tell you about, The Line Green Line. The Thin Green Line is the only organisation that protects endangered wildlife by supporting the rangers that work to protect them. They offer the rangers support through supplying training and equipment that is required for them to protect the animals and themselves from poachers while on duty. The Thin green Line was started by Sean Willmore who was a ranger working in a park South of Melbourne. He first became aware of the problem facing wildlife rangers when he went to an international rangers conference where rangers showed him injuries they have received from poaches. Sean went back to work and thought he had to act on this issue and help the ranges and the wildlife be safe. He decided to sell his car and remorgage his house. Sean thought he should make a film to raise awareness of this problem. He raised enough money from the documentary to start the Thin Green Line and begin helping other rangers in action. Often rangers are not supported and don't get paid a lot by the government in Africa. Most of their projects are in Africa with rangers who patrol rhinos, gorillas and elephants but they also have projects in Sumatra, Australia, Vietnam, Thailand and Kyrgyzstan. The Thin Green Line also support the families of rangers that have died working to protect these endangered animals. In fact The Thin Green Line supports 100 widows and 400 orphaned children. To learn more about the Thin Green Line organisation check out their website here or watch their story on Austrailan Story here.
As promised I have made a page about how you can help rhinos click here to see it.
