Thank you to Environment Secretary Michael Gove MP and Illegal Wildlife Trade Conference Champion Zac Goldsmith MP, for visiting the #TuskRhinoTrail. @michael.gove.mp@zacgoldsmithmp Rhino poaching is increasing: In 2007, 13 rhinos were poached in South Africa; in 2015 that number rose to 1,175, out of a global population of fewer than 30,000.
The sculptures are on display at a selection of iconic London sites including Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and Carnaby Street and will culminate with the celebration of World Rhino Day on 22 September 2018.

This is a 13th-month-old rhino foetus from a black #rhino that was poached back in 2013 on Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. Lewa has now had over 4.5 years with zero poaching, thanks to their incredible rangers on the ground. @lewa_wildlife This foetus can be seen at Lewa Education centre where they also had over 4,177 children and teachers participate in the Conservation Education Programme in 2017. With #WorldRhinoDay just around the corner, there is still a lot to do to help protect these endangered species and we need YOUR help! Tusk has been a major partner of Lewa since its inception. Please donate to Tusk so we can continue working with our project partners like Lewa to ensure these animals are around for future generations. https://www.tusk.org/donate/
