Kirsten is passionate about rhinos and really wants to get involved in the fight to stop rhino poaching whenever she can. “As I am blessed with writing skills I thought that the best way I could help the rhinos would be to get the message out to the children of the world that Rhino poaching is bad and that we need to stop it. By writing my books I have used fiction to keep the reader’s interest whilst feeding them the facts that are important in the rhino poaching situation. “
