- How do we get help for promoting our own World Rhino Day event? Please send your information and images to: info (at) worldrhinoday (dot) org and we’ll add it to the World Rhino Day website. If you have already blogged your event or added it to your website, post the link to the World Rhino Day page on Facebook® at facebook.com/WorldRhinoDay
- What is the purpose of the World Rhino Day page on Facebook®? The World Rhino Day page is set up as a centralized online information source where participants can receive updates and share plans for the Big Day. The Twitter hashtag is #worldrhinoday
- But I’m just one person – what can I do to help? One person can help make an impact, thanks to the reach of social media. Sharing information via social media is a critical component for raising public awareness. Anyone can select an article or a cause to share across their own social networks, which can have a trickle up effect on traditional media. How about sharing a dozen rhino-related links across your social networks on World Rhino Day (#worldrhinoday)?
