Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park in South Africa
Black and White Rhinos
To uphold the security of the Park’s rhino populations by maintaining a viable perimeter fence and to increase the effectiveness of anti-poaching and monitoring activities, in order to ensure the continued and increased competence of field rangers in the Reserve.
Donating £6,294.15 to provide first aid training and hydration packs for Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park’s field rangers and anti-poaching units.
HiP is synonymous with rhino conservation and, despite the incredible dedication of all those involved in the protection of the park’s rhinos, many rhinos have been killed on HiP since the start of the rhino poaching crisis in 2008.Hluhluwe uses patrolling and law enforcement activities to ensure the security of its rhino populations. In order for staff to perform successfully and efficiently, it is imperative that they are well equipped to perform any task that may be required. Over the years, Action for the Wild’s funds have been put towards field equipment required by the field rangers to continue to protect and monitor the rhinos of the park. As poachers are highly organised, using sophisticated communication equipment, it is imperative that anti-poaching patrols are sufficiently equipped and capable of counteracting their efforts.
