South Africa's Minister Molewa announces 2017 #rhino poaching toll as 1028, down by 26 on last year's 1054. High-point was 1215 rhino poached in 2014, up from 13 in 2007. Great to see upward trend halted. There is still a long way to go to end rhino poaching, but we are on the right track to win the fight!

This is heartbreaking! Pregnant #rhino mom and calf were both shot dead by poachers this morning at Pilanesberg National Park in #SouthAfrica The horns are still on as the poachers were interrupted. There is still a long way to go to save the rhinos. But a global collective effort is underway and we are doing all we can to help countries defeat the criminals behind these serious #wildlife crimes. Video courtesy of Nico Jacobs of Rhino 911 #CITES
