SA People.com Unite South African Expats Behind #killthetrade Campaign
SAPeople.com, one of the largest communities of South African's living abroad, have joined the front line and shown their support for the WWF / Africam #killthetrade Snapshot campaign. The idea is to mobilize the large number of South African's living abroad to participate in something that is very close to their hearts and help save a part of our countries heritage.
Amanda , Founder SAReunited.com and SAPeople.com had this to say:
"I was in Madikwe six weeks ago with my 3 daughters, and on the third day seven rhino were slaughtered, six in Botswana and this one just a few km from our camp. The poachers walked into a lion and shot a beautiful alpha male in defence as well. It was heartbreaking, and the children were stunned into grim silence. When I became aware of the #killthetrade campaign, I was compelled to get SAPeople involved to support this essential drive to unite South Africans to 'kill the trade' that kills rhinos, elephants and tigers. This is the perfect opportunity for us not to standby helplessly, but to all get involved to create awareness and fight the serious poaching that threatens our wildlife. Please join the drive of #killthetrade."
