IZZY the Rhino
Please take a moment to read the heartbreaking, but important, short story of Izzy the Rhino.
Though it reads like a children’s fable, the underlying story is very serious and needs to be told.
Last year, a reported 448 rhinos were killed in South Africa – poached for their horns.
Please give 2 minutes to reading about Izzy and help spread the word about the threat facing our world’s remaining rhinos.
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.
