Saving Rhino Phila is Panda award winner from the prestigious WildScreen Film Festival that took place last week in Bristol, UK. Rhinoceros poaching is a massive problem in South Africa. The value of rhino horn has soared to $65,000 per kilogram, making it more expensive than gold. Saving Rhino Phila focuses on the extremely dramatic story of the heroine, a rhinocerous named Phila – and the film unfolds with a completely unique mix of dramatic re-creations and more traditional documentary-style interviews. For more information and a behind the scenes look at the shooting of Saving Rhino Phila, check out the NHU Africa website here.

    i have never been so angered, by what i have seen happening to the rhino, this is infuriating. i am so mad that i must admit the one cure i can see in my blind fury is that if the rhinos cannot be protected, eliminate the cause of the danger, asia.
