The Parlotones: Saving Africa's Rhinos

The Parlotones
South African rockers The Parlotones has joined forces with a tour operator and a leading American rock radio station, DC101, to help create awareness for the Rhino poaching epidemic beyond South African borders. The campaign will offer listeners to DC101 a chance to win a once in a lifetime experience. The Parlotones will be flying out representatives from DC101 as well as 2 lucky listeners from the USA to South Africa where they will have an opportunity to join the band on a rhino tagging expedition. “Having toured the world extensively over the past few years we have realized that most people are totally oblivious to the fact that rhinos are almost extinct and we decided we were going to change this,” says band manager Raphael Domalik. “Teaming up with media around the world is one of the most effective ways to do this and we plan to provide many more opportunities like these to aid the cause.” Over 260 rhino have been slaughtered this year alone in South Africa, despite the many efforts to prevent the ever increasing poaching problem in the country.
