Two white rhinos walking in harmony on the Namibian savannah in evening light. Rhinos are being poached to extinction for their keratine horns, driven by the Chinese traditional medicine industry. These animals are so powerful yet so ridiculously vulnerable and seeing them being brutally murdered for keratine (which by the way has the same composition as your nails!) is heartbreaking.
Because poaching is really their highest threat today, proceeds of this painting will go directly to a dedicated emergency helicopter rescue unit in South Africa. They have succesfully saved countless rhinos in the wild and this is as hands-on as it can get in terms of having impact on the survival of a species.
