Elephants are being slaughtered for their tusks; rhinos for their horn.

 Stories like this inspired me to write Zuri. A wounded and dying Mom uses her last breaths to get help for her calf. Elephants are being slaughtered for their tusks; rhinos for their horn. Poachers growing rich from rising prices for ivory & horn, use choppers to select their targets and machine guns to kill. Against these odds, people are risking their own lives to save and protect these amazing animals. These courageous people & these threatened animals are the real-life inspiration behind Zuri.
