Getting to know some of the rangers responsible for keeping our rhinos safe has been a rewarding and humbling experience. These dedicated individuals face incredible challenges - not only in the form of hardened poachers who wouldn't think twice about killing them - but most work for institutions that lack the budget to provide even the most basic kit items, let alone top quality training.
StopRhinoPoaching.com has had the privilege, thanks to the funding of key partners, of facilitating the training of 40 Provincial Parks rangers to date.
Jacaranda FM - 30 rangers from 7 reserves in North West Parks, Limpopo Parks and Mpumalanga Parks.
The AAWDC and LCCSA, together with Quemic Integrated Security Solutions and ourselves - 8 rangers from Eastern Cape Parks and Tourism.
Olienhout Republic, Tuks, sponsored their ranger from North West Parks.
Western Cape Caterers, together with all the companies in their group, have sponored the training of 1 Eastern Cape ranger to date and plan on training a good few more!
WE ENCOURAGE COMPANIES TO SPONSOR ADVANCED TRAINING AND KIT FOR RANGERS ON THE FRONTLINES.
(We work on approximately R30 000.00 per ranger, depending on the kit items required.)
