Richard Branson Joins AWF Rhino Campaign
  A Knight Fights for Africa's Wildlife

Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, has teamed up with African Wildlife Foundation and WildAid to bring awareness to the horrors of rhino poaching. Rhino horn is in high demand in Asian markets, such as Vietnam, where it has been falsely touted as a miracle cure for a variety of human diseases. Branson joins a roster of passionate celebrity supporters, including Li Bingbing, Yao Ming, Edward Norton, and Jackie Chan, who are helping us educate the world on Africa's poaching crisis and stop the demand for wildlife products. "Africa's rhinos are facing a real crisis," says Branson. "We need your help now to raise awareness and reduce demand...before it's too late."
