Traditional Medicine for Rhino Protection – Sept 2023

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.
