Rhino news seems to have fallen out of the media lately, so good that someone high profile is still talking about the problem.  The more we all talk about what a bad thing rhino poaching is, the more we can all educate the rest of the world.
And this is only the tip of the horn, so to speak.  There are many other species across the globe that are being inappropriately hunted. 
So, keep sharing your anti-poaching stories and links, and if you have access to the traditional media, get a story printed.  If you have access to a famous person, encourage them to speak out against poaching too.
Just because the newspapers and TV are bored of rhino stories it doesn't mean the problem has gone away.  Keep talking!  Keep printing!  Keep sharing!

Hey!!! That was my idea, years ago!

My mate Elon and I are on the same wavelength!  Only difference is that he has the resources to make it happen.  

And, yes, aim for the poles to release the water.

There is a lot of wildlife education to be done across the world.

Vanessa atalanta, better known as the Red Admiral was obviously very curious about me. While I had my big lens on a tripod ready to get a photo of him from afar, he needed to inspect me closer, circling above me before settling down on top of my lens. He did this three or four times, almost as if he wanted to tell me something. Fortunately I had another camera with a macro lens with me.

Fledgling wrens always look so miserable, yet so adorable and they make us so happy.

There is value to a right bent in the UK politics at this juncture. Less complacently for one thing ....

Reed Bunting at #RSPB  #Otmoor.
It was a good day to be on the reserve yesterday, with cuckoos, sedge warbers and sky larks providing the soundtrack, and cranes and hobbies putting on a show.
