Summary

A Gift to this project will save the life of at least one Rhino. Since 2007 a dramatic rise in demand on Rhino horns came from Asia. A believe these are a cure the illegal trade found a boom of a high-value product. With such a high-value, poachers will stop at nothing to get a horn. Poachers have even invested in helicopters to poach. We have to act fast but we also in order to protect the Rhino's ensure the strictest confidentiality in our operations.

Challenge

Rhino poaching is a devastating problem across both the public and private sectors. Everyday at least three rhino are poached in South Africa predominately due to lack of resources and intelligence. We are fighting a war with criminal masterminds who are forever 2 steps ahead of the protectors on the ground. The financial incentive to rhino poachers combined with very high unemployment figures in rural communities, mean that poachers will force entry into these reserves to get a shot at a Rhino.

Solution

Provision of resources through funds for up-skilling of staff, vehicles, high-tech fencing, canine units and intelligence is the only way we can hope to turn the tables for rhino and begin to claim back our losses. This project aims to allow local partners and reserves access to critical funding required to develop strategies against poaching, as well as raise awareness of the impact that poaching has on the community.

Long-Term Impact

The success of this project will significantly improve the security of the wildlife protected, deter illegal rhino poachers & enable a fast and effective reaction when any illegal activity on the reserve is reported. Protection of the rhino and other wildlife will ensure the sustainability of eco-tourism ventures on the reserve & thus survival of the reserve itself and the jobs of hundreds of people from surrounding communities.
