ADDITIONAL SECURITY FOR A UNIQUE PROPERTY

The Dinokeng Game Reserve is a unique reserve formed by combining state owned property and privately owned plots to form the DGR. At ten years old, it has the potential to become a model for future conservation where people and wild animals live in harmony. And it is on the way to prove itself as an example for successful transformation with so far more than 800 permanent jobs created for people living in the adjoining communities. The DGR is a Big Five game reserve and hosts both white and black rhino populations. To protect these rhinos they have an anti-poaching team that consists of rangers, dogs and dog handlers. With the increase in poaching, they approached Baby Rhino Rescue for help with additional technologies to monitor and detect illegal poaching activities within the reserve. We are very pleased to announce this new partner and are committed to keeping their rhinos safe!

NEW GATE FOR MORE PROTECTION

Baby Rhino Rescue has funded the installation of a new mechanical gate at the main entrance to a private game reserve that we work with. The gate is also enhanced with a solar-powered video camera which records all movement through the day. The video camera is connected to a monitor inside the property, so all comings and goings are closely watched and the integrity of the gate can be ensured. This donation was “a game changer” for the property, and it’s all because of you, our dedicated donors!

THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX

We funded the work of a traditional healer – a sangoma – at a special private game reserve. Typically, poachers meet with sangomas before they leave to poach, participating in rituals that bring luck and provide protection. Our goal is to protect rhinos using traditional medicines and applying them in areas where the poachers are active. When news travels within local communities that a sangoma has been active, the poachers will almost certainly not want to enter that area.
