(TruthSeekerDaily) Ashley Nichole, in an effort to save one of the world’s last black rhinos, has announced a fundraising campaign to raise the $750,000 needed to keep from having a hunting permit issued for the endangered animal. Any donations are welcome and can be made here [LINK]ashley activist

The Dallas Safari Club has acquired a permit to hunt one of the last 1,800 black rhinos in Namibia, country in southern Africa . The Dallas Safari Club is a gathering of thrill seekers who have the money and connections to hunt whatever animal their egos desire. This particular convention, taking place on January 8th will auction off a permit to kill a Black Rhino, an extremely endangered specie that once proudly roamed the African planes.

The money that they raise through their auction, which will bring in $750,000 will be donated to the Trust Fund for Namibia’s Black Rhino, to help the remaining population. When asked why don’t they just donate the money without killing the animal, their reply was:

“People are talking about ‘Why don’t you do a photo safari?’ or whatever. Well, that’s great, but people don’t pay for that,” –Ben Carter, director of the Dallas Safari Club.

That’s when Activist Ashley Nichole decided enough was enough, and the time for action was now. Ashley says, “If money has the power to decide life and death for another living being, then that some money can also save a life. We as a society are obligated to take care of those who cannot take care of themselves”. Quoting Gandhi, Ashley states “Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary.”

When injustice is done, will we simply dismiss it as the norm? How can we expect other to help us out if we cannot to the same for those who don’t have the mental capacity to stand up for their own rights?

The deadline for donations is January 7, 2014.  The permit will be issued on that date unless a suitable amount has been raised.

The target goal is $800,000 which will secure the permit at the auction. Every dime of the money raised will go directly towards the Rhino Trust.
