Do you see this creature?! This majestic, beautiful, and magnificent creature?!
Well, it's called the Western Black Rhinoceros AND THEY'RE ALL GONE. EXTINCT. DEAD. 

This news has been announced by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature just today. Further statements claim that more rhinoceroses are on the verge of extinction as well. There is hope, though. In the past, many animals that have been declared extinct have been "found" and, through efficient conservation programs, have gained numbers. Such animals include the White Rhino and Przewalski's horse. 

Now, I'm not sure how to help out what's going on in Africa from all the way here from San Diego. Picketing? Yeah, raising awareness is nice but unless we do something big, no one's going to do anything. Fundraising? I guess sending money to conservation groups is a great way to help, but that's a little impersonal. I'm up for it. Have any suggestions? Leave them in the comments below!

Also, don't forget to bring letters or designs for posters to the next STWF meeting NEXT FRIDAY!

Remember guys,


  1. :( I'm going to start crying. I can't really think of anything to do either, aside form raising money. I don't know if the rest of the club would be on board, but I definitely think we should try our hand at something.

  2. What a bummer. This really is bad news. Fundraising for animal conservation should be good—maybe we can connect this to our bottle initiative?

  3. Fundraising seems like the best bet. We can certainly use the proceeds from the t-shirt sales to animal conservation funds.

    Since we've also discussed doing another t-shirt design contest, the next one could be geared towards animal conservation.
