For some endangered rhinos, a 1,000-mile road to rescue from poachers starts with a helicopter ride — hanging upside down, blindfolded and sedated. That might sound uncomfortable, but experts say it’s actually easier on the massive mammals than other means.
Plus, it’s a quick way to pluck them to safety at a time when poaching for rhino horns is rampant. In South Africa alone, 341 have been killed so far this year, up from 333 for all of 2010.
The length some people will go to rescue endangered animals amazes me. Not because I think its unimportant but simply because of the incredible effort and sacrifice it requires. And yet our best efforts pale in comparison with Jesus who gave up all of heaven to come dwell among us and make available God’s grace that saves and restores us!
Thank You LORD!
