Stop Poaching Now! Hosts Successful RIDING FOR RHINOS

Stop Poaching Now! Hosts Successful RIDING FOR RHINOS

It was busy week in LA for Oscars, but some special individuals took time out of their busy schedule for a very important cause.

Stop Poaching Now! hosted a special RIDING FOR RHINOS at at Flywheel in West Hollywood. The incredible 50-minute, fat-burning, choreographed, full-body cardio cycle workout was attended by about 40 supporters who came together to help raise over $15,000 that will be used to purchase drones to track and prevent illegal poaching of rhinos and other endangered animals including elephants and lions.

Animal activist and actor, Johnny Simmons, star of the upcoming THE LATE BLOOMER (produced by Heidi Jo) shows up to support the Rhinos.

The event was hosted by Founder of  NPO STOP POACHING NOW! (SPN) and Eclectic Pictures President (LOVELACE, OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN) Heidi Jo Markel and Executive Board member Sebastian Serrell-Watts along with Stop Poaching Now! Honorary Board Members Johnny Simmons (THE LATE BLOOMER; SCOTT PILGRIM; PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER); Samuel Larsen (Glee); Anthony Michael Hall (THE DARK KNIGHT; EDWARD SCISSORHANDS; THE BREAKFAST CLUB) and Taylor John Smith (Cruel Intentions; INSIDIOUS: CHAPTER 3; A HAUNTED HOUSE 2) also helped put together the important event.

“This is an incredible afternoon,” said Markel at Flywheel.

At current poaching rates, rhinos in the wild will be extinct in less than 10 years. Poaching kills more than 35,000 Elephants and Rhinos each year and their horns and tusks are used and carved into ivory trinkets. Cruelly and inhumanly treated, these highly intelligent animals are killed, leaving their young abandoned and drastically diminishing their species. Their survival lies in an immediate end to the ivory trade and we have the chance to end the decades of mass slaughter and recover these precious animals.
