Brian Keeling is raising funds for Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife

Rhino horns are highly prized, estimated to fetch up to $60,000 per kilo on the black market – more than the price of gold ($55,000) or cocaine. Rhino horn is composed mainly of keratin, the same component as in human nails. Weighing up to 4 kilograms this translates to $240,000 or R3,600,000 per large horn. To put this into perspective my R5,000 converts to 1 in 720. It would take another 719 sponsors to make up this black market price for one large rhino horn. With a diminishing rhino population (or supply so to speak) and increasing demand, this exacerbates the problem. The efforts of Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife to save the Rhino from extinction need our support. My intention is to swim the 8 Midmar miles to raise R5,000 – that is R625 per mile – your contribution will be most appreciated.
