Izzy the rhino

Please take a moment to read the heartbreaking, but important, short story of Izzy the Rhino.
Though it reads like a children’s fable, the underlying story is very¬†serious and needs to be told.

Last year, a reported 448 rhinos were killed in South Africa Рpoached for their horns.

Please give 2 minutes to reading about Izzy and help spread the word about¬†the threat facing our world’s remaining rhinos.


In August 2011, The Guardian¬†reported that yet another rhino had been found killed in South Africa. ¬†With a reported 448 rhinos poached in South Africa in 2011, this story was tragic but certainly not an anomaly. ¬† But for the first time, the rhino had a name — ¬†Izzy — and a story. With the help of illustrator Steven Womack, we are proud to share the story of Izzy the Rhino with you.

Though this story reads like a fable, parental discretion is advised.
