Actress Kelly Preston Lends Support to KZN Rhino Watch Campaign in Memory of Lawrence Anthony

The Last RhinosAmerican actress Kelly Preston has lent her support to KZN Rhino Watch, which the Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization is running with East Coast Radio.

Preston has shared a video on her website asking people to support the campaign. Lawrence Anthony, co-author of The Last Rhinos: My Battle to Save One of the World’s Greatest Creatures, was a friend of Preston’s and in the video she says that he “did so much to help save animals during his life”. She adds that it is “all of our responsibility to do whatever we can to save them”.

I am reaching out to all of you to please do whatever you can to assist with the massive Rhino crisis that we are faced with here in South Africa. There are only around 22,000 Rhino left in South Africa and at the current rate of poaching, we are looking at extinction by the year 2050, but with massive escalation of poaching—it could be sooner. We need to get the full-time helicopter program back up and running. With this program in the air, we saw an 85% reduction in poaching.

KZN Rhino Watch is delighted to announce that American actress, Kelly Preston, has given her support to the project.

More good news is that in the past seven days there’ve been no poaching incidents in the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park where our chopper is based.

This is our ultimate goal.
