I was born with the dust of Africa flowing through my veins. This happy fact has blessed me with an abiding passion—and compassion—for all living creatures.

This innate love for nature has remained with me all these years that I’ve been fortunate to live in the United States. But despite the great geographic distance from the continent of Africa, my soul aches, because I “hear” the cry of the voiceless.

Those large mammals, the elephant—and especially the rhino, are in the midst of nihilistic struggle for their very survival.

How could I not answer their call? So I’ve begun to do something about it. Beginning with a drumbeat of postings on social media: #RhinoProtector
