Rapper 50 Cent has been approached by African charity eBlockwatch to adopt an endangered black rhinoceros.

The organization helps communities in Southern Africa fight crime, including poaching, and hopes 50 Cent’s involvement would help raise awareness of the animal’s plight – 227 protected animals have been slaughtered by poachers so far this year.

“We want to ask him if he wants to become the godfather of our rhino so that he can create awareness worldwide about rhino poaching,” eBlockwatch’s Andre Snyman told South Africa’s Sunday Times.

Phila – the rhino in question – was shot by poachers twice in July, prompting authorities to cut off her horn to protect her. However, the poachers returned to shoot her again and attempt to cut out her horn stub.
