Tyra de Billet, 10 years, from Eston, KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa, says of her picture titled 'Rocky':
'Don't look at look at our rhinos like they are money...look at them like they are your family! So when you kill a rhino its like killing a family member. Now stop killing our rhinos!! Because they are our life!!'
Kayla Lindsey, 11 years, from Durban, KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa sends a beautiful message to all in her artwork titled 'Hear from our hearts'.
Daniel Lau Kayson, 8 years from Malaysia, writes for the rhino 'Spare my life; stop my cry'.
Nur Kwan, 8 years from Malaysia, says 'Being cruel isnt cool'.
Chew Jun Hung, depicting conspicuous consumption and materialism in our times today rightly, says 'Greed of human causes death of rhino'.
These works were produced by kids participating in the Rhino Art project.
Rhino Art is a project fighting rhino poaching through art and education. Rhino Art involves local communities in South Africa, Malaysia and Vietnam that are at times the silent witnesses to the slaughter. We increase conservation awareness amongst the youth and cultivate a next generation of wildlife 'ambassadors' that has a vested interest in the protection of rhino and other endangered species.
The project's aim is to gather the largest number of children's 'Art Voices' ever recorded in support of Rhino Protection, and to use these 'Hearts and Minds' messages from the children of Africa, as a worldwide call to action against Rhino poaching.
Let their voices be heard!
