‘Save This Rhino’
Presently, three rhinos are killed every day and if this continues, the animal will be extinct by 2025. If the ban on illegal rhino horn trade is removed, it could be as rapid as a couple of years.
Shot with the support of Cisco Systems Inc., Dimension Data and Land Rover South Africa, entirely on Canon equipment, Save This Rhino follows the desperate efforts in South Africa to save the critically endangered rhinoceros. 80% of the world’s rhinoceros, whose population is now hovering below 25,000 at the hands of poachers hunting for the highly sought-after rhino horn, live in and around South Africa.
This thought-provoking and emotionally-charged documentary series charts the struggles, obstacles, and wins of the courageous men and women who are determined to fight on the frontlines of this conservational war to save the rhino. Prepare to be inspired by their resilience, unwavering dedication, and bravery. An avid conservationist, Kevin Pietersen is deeply committed to saving the rhino and making a real difference in the lives of these majestic sensitive creatures, who until 100 years ago were roaming in their hundreds of thousands across the continent. Save This Rhino follows the journey of Arthur, a orphaned baby rhino who endured the death of his mother at the hands of poachers, and showcases the problem and some of the solutions to this tragic chapter of human history.
