25 HOURS OF ANTI-POACHING AIRCRAFT PATROL

Partnership:

Limpopo Rhino Security Group

Date:

January, 2018

Location:

South Africa

LRSG is a group of committed rhino owners. It began one morning in 2014 – Insimbi and a heavily pregnant Shambula lie lifelessly in the African sand, both butchered for their horns. From that day onward, rhino owners in this vast area bound together and remain on the forefront of the war against poaching. They fund their own Anti-Poaching tactics, sending family members on patrol in dangerous situations. They are not rangers. They are not military trained. But they are 100% dedicated to the 500 rhino owned between them. EYES IN THE SKY is the single most effective poaching deterrent but very expensive. The CoC is sponsoring a Bat Hawk aircraft, pilot and fuel to minimize the threat of poachers during the next full moon. Unite the fight. Help us reach this goal, quickly.

Funding goal: $3,000
