Today we welcomed visitors from The Wilderness Foundation Africa who talked to our secondary students about the plight of the Rhino and how we can help, by saying NO to rhino horn.
Rhinoceros horns have long been objects of mythological beliefs where some cultures prize them for their SUPPOSED magical or medicinal qualities. However, research at Ohio University has removed the mystique by explaining how Rhino horns are composed entirely of keratin, the same substance as hair and nails and have NO medicinal benefits.
It is import for our students to become ambassadors for our school by spreading the word to stop the evils of the illegal wildlife trade and save these majestic creatures from extinction.
