Wildlife crime is sweeping the planet. The illegal trafficking of wildlife is now one of the world’s largest criminal industries, with repeated links to terrorism networks.
High Target Species such as elephant and rhino are being hunted to extinction. These animals are the most difficult to protect, as poachers go to the most extreme lengths to kill them. If we can safeguard these animals, then entire ecosystems are protected.
Anti-poaching rangers form the first and last line of defence for nature. Without the right training, equipment, management and support they cannot defend the World’s natural heritage for future generations.
Damien sold his house and used his life savings to use his special ops and military experience to train an army to fight poachers in Zimbabwe.
He is on a mission to save these beautiful animals.
They use camouflage to catch poachers in the act.
These rangers track the critically endangered black rhino for up to 20kms a day. Substitute feeding is put into some locations in order to attract and account for those that have not been followed the entire time.
They Donate equipment and provide training in one of the highest poaching areas
At one of the International Anti-Poaching Foundation’s operations in Zimbabwe, not one rhino has been poached since they started managing security operations there in 2010. The nearest rhino population, 100kms to the east, has been decimated, from 76 black rhino down to only a remaining few in recent years.
If anyone is going to save the rhinos in Africa, these rangers will!
Anti-poaching rangers form the first and last line of defence for nature. Without the right training, equipment, management and support they cannot defend the World’s natural heritage for future generations.Direct action anti-poaching is a vital component of any successful conservation formula where poaching is a threat. Without the support for the rangers who risk their lives daily to meet this responsibility, then we have little hope for long-term preservation of the natural world.
