HELP WILDLIFE BEFORE ITS TOO LATE
Wildlife all over the world face many threats such as poaching, habitat loss, global warming, over-exploitation, pollution and many more.
With the rapidly increasing human population and needs, there is not much room left for the wildlife. At Heart Of Rescue International, we work closely with different stakeholders in finding and implementing solutions to these problems.

The huge demand for the African elephant tusks in the illegal ivory trade has led to horrifying statistics of an estimated 40,000 elephants being killed in a year by poachers. This means that the species is dying faster than it is reproducing and if left unchecked could go extinct within ten years.
The rhino species has been hit hardest by poaching. It is said that an average of three rhinos are killed daily. They are killed for the illegal rhino horn trade. The situation is terrifying as only three individuals of the Northern white rhino sub-species are left.
Lions suffer the most from human wildlife conflict especially with pastoral and nomad communities as the lions prey on livestock in cases of severe drought. They are also targeted by trophy hunters for their mane, teeth and nails. The lion is completely extinct in North Africa.
The Cheetah’s biggest threat is habitat loss. The cheetah numbers are so few it said that a lot of genetic inbreeding occurs because most of the cheetahs are genetically related, this leads to high infant mortality.
Leopards are poached for their beautiful fur coats and other body parts. They also face the threat of habitat loss and fragmentation which leads to lack of prey.
The Grevy’s Zebra has suffered a drastic drop in population numbers as it is hunted for its beautiful hide. Competition for pasture and water with pastoralists has also affected the species.
The Hirola is a critically endangered species with a global population of less than 500 individuals. Their historic decline in numbers is attributed mainly to habitat loss, predation, poaching and drought.
