RockHard Weekend stands firm against Rhino poaching

The nature-based male sexual performance enhancer, RockHard Weekend, has taken a firm stand against poaching by supporting the awareness and fund-raising efforts of conservation group, Rhino Buddies a Non Profit Company 2012/079107/08.
RockHard Weekend and Rhino Buddies — a Non Profit Company 2012/079107/08 raising funds to highlight the decimation of rhino and other wildlife through poaching — have produced “Stop poaching our rhino now!” t-shirts, bumper stickers, license disk holders and other material which will go on sale soon.
Funds raised through initiatives such as these are also used for counter-poaching campaigns. Currently, Rhino Buddies is desperately seeking funds to develop a tracking device which monitors a rhino’s heart rate and blood pressure and if the animal has been lying down for longer than five minutes. In the event of irregular readings, an SMS alert is sent to rangers.
“This technology can greatly improve response time and help save more rhinos but we still need to develop a sustainable long-life battery, the cost of which is astronomical. We are appealing to the public to help,” said Willem Botha of Rhino Buddies.
Rhino poaching has escalated dramatically in SA.  In 2007, 13 Rhino were killed for their horns, 83 from 2008 to the end of 2010 and an astronomical 448 in 2011. So far, 339 rhino have been slaughtered this year — more than one a day. 
“One of our most prized assets, the rhino, is being brutally depleted at an alarming rate,” said Giulia Criscuolo, responsible pharmacist for OTC Pharma SA, which distributes RockHard Weekend. “If we don’t stand up and fight, it won’t be long before we are left with nothing more than memories of these amazing beasts,” she added.
Research has comprehensively disproved myths that rhino horn holds healing qualities, in particular for impotence.  A report by CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species) in April 2012 noted that rhino horns are composed largely of the protein keratin, calcium and melanin and hold no pharmacological effects.
Despite this, rhino horn is still traded illegally as “black gold” and can fetch over $65,000/kg, more than the precious metal gold which is currently at  US$54,500/kg.
Black rhino are critically endangered with only 4,860 survivors. White rhino total 20,600, are classified as near-threatened and are dwindling rapidly.
Look out for Rhino Buddies at the White River Waterfront and at the Legogot and Nelspruit farmers’ markets.  The initiative is also supported by popular annual festivals including the Renosterhoringsfees at Loskopdam and the Klipkopje Water Festival in Nelspruit.
In Cape Town, Rhino Buddies will be at the RockHard Weekend photo pod at the Mother City Queer Project (MCQP) in December – an annual party which draws around 20 000 local and international revelers.

RockHard Weekend is a 100% nature-based, male herbal supplement designed to improve sexual performance and is safe to use with alcohol.  It’s available at pharmacies, Dis-Chem, Clicks, Pick n Pay, Medi-Rite and Wellness Warehouse.
