“Dia de Muertos. That’s the traditional way to say it. It’s become Dia de los Muertos and that’s now tied in to All Saints and souls day…we celebrate the dead on this day, we remember…I guess my message is…if we don’t look after our rhinos, if we don’t protect them, stop people killing them for their tusks then that’s what we can look forward to…a Remembrance Day for them…a Remembrance Day for all the other animals we’re not looking after…a Remembrance Day for all the things were not looking after, not protecting, not keeping safe and you can call it all saints or All Souls’ Day too as much as you like…but that won’t say much for our souls.”
