PROJECT RHINO HORSE ANTI-POACHING UNIT

Project Rhino is equipping and supporting Horse Units at selected game reserves in KZN. These mounted rangers are able to patrol off-road and have a higher vantage point, helping them to see above the long summer grass. Horses are quiet and extend the daily patrol from 10km on foot to 30km on horseback. As a result, rangers are far less fatigued when contact with poachers is made. Response time is much shorter for a mounted ranger, thereby improving the chances of a poacher's apprehension before a rhino becomes a statistic.
