+Jena Troelsgaard in many cases, humans are the cause of animals in distress when we move into their territory thru deforestation for 'economic development' to provide jobs and living space for ourselves! Whats done cannot be undone but we should take actions to alleviate animals in distress in whatever measure that deem 'effective'. 😉

Everybody has a "say" here, but nobody's neither helping out nor paying the bills for rhino's conservation besides South Africans. If their experts judge it necessary, I wouldn't dare to oppose.
