This initiave was launched by the daughter of one of the bloggers on Sharksworld. Most of us are passionate about the plight of our rhinos.
Mission Rhino is a non-profit organisation (Registration number 1040-2010) based in South Africa dedicated to preserving both the black and white African Rhino. High Heels 4 Horns is the Summerheat charity which supports Mission Rhino. All Finalist in each province also run a charity event together to raise funds, but Mila wanted to do something extra to try and raise funds.
The majority of African rhino horns are now headed for traditional medicine markets in China and Vietnam. There had been a similar increase in illegal rhino horn movement from Nepal and India during the same time period.
Despite China being a signatory to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) and banning trade in rhinoceros horn and its derivatives in 1993, current rhino poaching levels suggest that the use of rhino horn continues unabated in traditional medicine markets.
