Through our 3 main focus areas – Security and Protection, Education and Awareness, and Community and Conservation – we are building a vast network of solutions, partners and supporters to help us reach our mission to protect the rhino.
SECURITY & PROTECTION
Security clusters HAVE BEEN INitiated IN THE WATERBERG and with more funding the aim is to cover the entire region. This involves the installation of LPR cameras that use state of the art software. THESE Can track vehicles ACTING SUSPICIOUSLY all the way to Kruger National Park and beyond nationally, so that information can be shared and criminals apprehended.
Equipment for rangers constantly needs upgrading so that they can have access to the best communication units, intelligence systems, bullet-proof vests and even bivvy tents to improve their lives out on patrol.
WHILE VASTLY SIMILAR, THE BLACK RHINO AND
WHITE RHINO HAVE SOME VERY KEY DIFFERENCES – AND IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THEIR COLOUR!
