Rhinos would not exist today if it were not for the work of a few determined people within Africa and across the world, doing their part towards conservation.

With more money, we can support more programmes, we can come up with more initiatives and more ways to save the rhino and not just save rhino populations, but increase numbers and develop populations.

 Rhinos might be endangered but it is never too late to save the rest.

Let’s all get involved; Inverdoorn has designed new flip-flops to promote RhinoProtect. With these skilfully designed flip flop sandals, you will be able to walk on the beach and make a statement without having to say a word because the imprint of Rhino Protect will be imprinted in the sand.

You can help us raise awareness of the plight of the rhino…

There will be parties and events scattered all over Cape Town for this nine day period. Even though the events are vast and varied one important aspect remains is the encouragement of LGBTQI, and straight folks can participate too.

State Of the Nation Address – My Thoughts

You can either agree or disagree, but last night was a complete disgrace.

Fact is – We need a new #President ….. “Een met n bek” … en nie een wat speech writers het nie! ….. Our country needs order …. Our country needs a strong president to deal with all these strong personalities in government. Looking Past all these issues… ‪#‎Zuma‬ You have to go ,,,‪#‎MyOpinion_Hate_it_Or_Love_it‬

The points that Zuma mentioned, sounded similar to last years speech that he made. What changed this year.

He laughed about what had happened in parliament and did not mention anything about the happenings.
