september 22 is world rhino day, meant to raise awareness about the struggle faced by all five species of rhino, help curtail the supply of rhino horns, and highlight efforts to ensure the animal’s continued survival.
one such effort involves a four man anti poaching team tasked with guarding the ol pejeta conservancy’s four remaining northern white rhinos. with only eight left, it is the world’s most endangered species. located in the laikipia district of kenya, ol pejeta conservancy is also the largest sanctuary for the black rhino.
the rise in asia’s middle class has meant that demand for rhino horn has soared, with prices on the black market exceeding that of gold and cocaine. with an increase in poaching in ol pejeta, the anti poaching team now provides twenty four hour armed protection for the rhinos, and has developed a close relationship with the animals.
poachers will track rhinos from helicopters, darting them from above and then hacking off the horn and part of the face with a chainsaw. the animals are often left to suffer and die. the rhinos seen here were found wandering in unimaginable pain, but remarkably survived thanks to timely veterinary supervision.
to protect the rhinos and deter poachers, veterinarians will remove much of the animal’s horn (as seen in the second last photo). the rhinos are anesthetized, and suffer no trauma. the horn is not like an elephant’s tusk, and will grow back in a few years.
Please boost this signal
These animals are dying out for the greed of human beings. The more who see this, the more will think about animal poaching

Typical racist rhetoric:
The “oh, but you’re not like the rest of them” line.
His fucking face in the third pic is like every white boy I’ve ever seen try to explain away his racist/sexist/homophobic comment.
When it’s actually the opposite. English settlers were the savages. Native Americans had running irrigation systems! They had beautiful and intricate cities and homes and communities. They were clean, and respectful of the environment, and even used a form of breath sweeteners! But no. You won’t learn any of that in American history classes. You won’t learn about the complete and utter genocide of a nation of people who originally inhabited this land. Nope.
While I’m not justifying the horrible things the settlers did, but let’s not pretend that all of the Native Americans were like Disney’s Pocahontas. (Not even all the Native Americans in the movie were like her—remember, Kocoum tried to kill John Smith for kissing Pocahontas.) Go read about the Comanches, for instance. Not exactly a bunch of tree huggers sitting around braiding flowers into each other’s hair.
And where are the Comanches now? Because for all of their violence, they don’t seem to be benefitting from it today.
In most of this discourse about groups of people of color ravaged by European imperialism, nobody’s really saying that people of color were never ever violent or never did anything wrong. We’re saying few acts in history compare to the scale of violence committed by Europeans, and that today people still try to act like white people then were saving savages from themselves, and/or that either white people were the only civilized group, or the only group worth learning in depth about the history of.
White people remind me of those serial killers you see on TV that kill a bunch of people & keep an item of clothing or a piece of jewelry that belonged to the people they killed to wear for “fun”.
Terry Crews gets it. Amen!
every achievement in cinema history has led up to this moment
#that time that michael jordan retired from basketball to play baseball #and then was bad at baseball so went back to basketball #and in order to celebrate his return to basketball #we made a movie in which he teams up with 50 year old cartoon characters #to defeat the space aliens who magically stole the mojo of other famous basketball players #and planned to kidnap these 50 year old cartoon characters #so the cartoon characters who literally never played basketball in any of their cartoons #were like clearly the only way to settle this is with a game of basketball #and just when all hope seems lost #bill murray who has literally only been in one other scene in the movie #shows up completely without explanation #and no one questions it #and doesn’t even do anything to help the team like he literally just shows up to pass the ball to michael #and then michael jordan slam dunks the ball from half court to win the game #and someone in hollywood read that script #and was like yes perfect no changes need to be made let’s get this project going #i don’t believe in god #but i do believe in space jam
