African Wildlife Foundation: Film Screening 'Sides of a Horn' - Dallas
Complimentary screening of Sides of a Horn.
In parts of Asia, people pay a higher price for a pound of rhino horn than they would pay for a pound of gold or cocaine. Their irrational demand for a substance no different from human fingernails is fueling an ideological battle on the ground in South Africa.
Many South Africans living near the country’s declining rhino populations face the heart-breaking decision of living in crippling poverty or aiding and abetting the global trade in rhino horn and other illegal wildlife products.
Join us as we view and discuss the first film to tell the story of Africa's rhino poaching war from both sides of the fence.
