PICS: Big thanks to Aquila and its young eco-hero
We all owe young Hunter Mitchell a vote of thanks. He has done an enormous amount of work in his short life to bring the public’s attention to the slaughter of our rhino population.
We also salute and praise Aquila Game Reserve for encouraging this young hero in his endeavours. Aquila has run an enormous campaign costing millions of rand to bring the plight of the rhino to the attention of all our foreign visitors.
I know that Searl Derman is passionate about wildlife and will stop at nothing to ensure that our rhino population is properly protected so that our grandchildren will have the joy of seeing rhinos in the wild.
