Rohit Sharma joins Anti-Poaching campaign in Kenya

Nairobi: Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma joined a anti-poaching campaign to save the wild animals of Africa as he along with Hollywood actors Matt Le Blanc and Salma Hayek will be involved in taking care of the last surviving Northern White Rhinoceros of the rare species.

"I have been a member of PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) and when I was informed about the cause, I thought it is my duty to join the anti-poaching drive. That's what got me to Nairobi. I was fascinated to have a look at Sudan (Northern White Rhino) and the sniffer dogs, who catch hold of the poachers," said Rohit.

On his part Rohit said, "I will be donating for this cause as I am so happy to find out what kind of work is being done by Mr Hameed and Mr Yakub to carry on this anti-poaching drive".
