Project Rhino K9 Unit
Project Rhino has launched a specialised wildlife crime dog unit to support KwaZulu-Natal game reserves; the Unit has already made a significant impact.
Project Rhino De-Horning Programme
Project Rhino is making a national and international call for funding to have approximately 200 rhino de-horned in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa over the next year. De-horning is seen as a temporary measure to prevent the killing of a rhino for its horn by poachers. It is an ongoing process, as the horn regrows after removal.
Project Rhino KZN’s flagship project is the Zululand Anti-Poaching Wing – an aerial support program benefitting 26 game reserves in northern KZN.
ZAP-Wing Pilot, Etienne Gerber is interviewed at Oshkosh Airshow 2013:
