501(c) charitable organization STOP POACHING NOW! held a cardio party on a bike this week at Flywheel West Hollywood to save the lives of endangered animals. Founded by Hollywood film producer Heidi Jo Markel, STOP POACHING NOW! has become the go to charity for celebrities and animal activists wanting to protect rhinos, tigers, lions and elephants from extinction in the wild.
The likes of Samuel Larson, Johnny Simmons and Taylor John-Smith rode to their hearts content helping raise close to 20k benefiting The Mkomazi Rhino Sanctuary run by Sir Tony Fitzjohn and Damien Mander’s Kruger National Park.
If current poaching rates continue, rhinos are expected to be extinct from the wild in under a decade! STOP POACHING NOW!’s efforts from RIDE-4-RHINOS are going towards purchasing drones that track and prevent poaching.
