From the 21st to the 23rd of November, Lotus FM’s Morning Rush, Life and Style, Midday Spice and Desi Drive shows will be broadcasting live from Giants Castle. The station in conjunction with Ezemvelo KZN wildlife is continuing doing their bit to fight against Rhino pouching. Lotus FM and Ezemvelo KZN wildlife, recently ran an on-air campaign, in which listeners were appealed to sms SAVE to 44135. The funds from the campaign were contributed towards the Anti-Rhino Pouching Fund and to create a platform of interest by uniting the public to assist South African reserve with conservation.
Earlier this year the SABC launched the ‘Save the Rhino Campaign’ in a bid to garner support from the public to save the rhino from extinction. Ever since the poaching epidemic in 2008, South Africa has lost over 1400 rhinos, this year alone over 455 Rhinos were pouched and the numbers are still rising. In a statement, Lotus FM station Manager Alvin Pillay said; “We are passionate about saving the white and black rhino. The Lotus FM team, have become serious Rhino lovers. Rhinos are our heritage, and we must all fight to protect these magnificent creations.
