Winning the hearts and minds of surrounding communities, and how this helps our rhinos.
Engaging the communities through dialogue, support and improved awareness on the plight of the rhino is essential to increase community participation in conservation and protection of rhinos. Local communities are the first to notice “strangers” in town. Communities who benefit from the reserve act as eyes and ears, reporting on any suspicious behaviour. Appreciative mothers who have peace of mind that their young children are in safe hands during the day, will be especially vigilant in return.
May update on the Foxbat - Gav is half way through his licence.
