Why create a safe haven for rhinos?

Saving the rhino also means protecting communities

‘Wildlife trafficking has certainly changed the game. It’s brought in the crime syndicates and that brings a whole different dimension.’

David Powrie - Warden, southern African game reserve

Wildlife

They’re part of our proud African heritage

Social

They stimulate job creation in communities

Economic

They attract tourists and investment

Environmental

They anchor the ecosystem for other animals and plants

What makes protecting rhinos so difficult?

Manual security processes

Visitors and staff signed a register to enter reserve gates

Basic access control

No digital security checks or identity scans before entry

Remote location, limited communication

No mobile reception or data links, only landlines

Lack of basic IT infrastructure

No network, data centre, or Internet access

Rangers need to be one step ahead

'If you've heard a shot, it's too late.’
