"There is a quote by Albert Einstein which says, “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing”. Since its inception in 2010, Stop Rhino Poaching and Elise have certainly not sat back and done nothing! I have been fortunate to be involved with Elise since 2012 and am always taken aback by her commitment, dedication and passion not only for Rhino conservation and protection but for the people entrusted with this responsibility. Elise has stayed true to her motto of Trust, Collaboration and Impact and forged relationships between different Rhino Mangers, Section Rangers and Field Rangers on the ground and in doing so has brought us all together – sharing ideas and all working towards a common goal. By carefully understanding and listening to the needs of the Rangers at the forefront of Rhino poaching, Elise has channelled her support and funding to where it is needed most and makes a difference and perhaps more importantly, looking at sustainable ways to support Rhino and Rangers long into the future."

"I was introduced to anti-poaching K9's through Elise from SRP about 10 years ago. At that time Elise told me that my K9 working career will never be the same again. With the support and exposure I received from Elise through SRP I am privileged to have trained a high number of K9's for different people in Africa. I have met amazing people on the frontlines and visit astonishing places. Through SRP I am not only living my calling and passion but also giving back to rhinos, wildlife and communities. "

"The most refreshing aspect of SRP support is the pragmatic manner in which problems are tackled and solutions are found. There is always a genuine desire to make a difference however big or small that may be. SRP further, goes to a lot of effort to understand the issues that really count to the men and women on the ground, and at the coalface of rhino protection and conservation. We have found SRP to be of high integrity and a great team player with huge commitment, not only to the rhinos but very importantly to the people who are responsible for protecting and managing Southern Africa’s rhinos.

"I met this blonde lady with heavy energy, like in next level energy. Her passion and drive is overwhelming, it spikes a different kind of emotion in me, we CAN do this. Needless to say, 11 years down the line, I am still very fortunate to call this lady my friend, Elise Serfontein. Her passion for not only persevering, but health, morale, stability and much more amongst rangers on the ground has made her the iron lady of the decade. You only know the true value of a person if you know where the heart is, SRP is one massive rhino heart. Without their dedication, out of the box forward thinking, new technology implementation, that special bond that they build with the reserve and you as person, much would not have been possible. A very challenging time lays ahead of us, we must be realistic. But with friends and true passionate rhino and ranger conservationist like SRP, we are willing to take the leap with them and explore the next move. We'll done SRP and Elise, we salute you. "
