Illegal wildlife trade has been going on for years which involves animals from different Continents, Africa, Asia, North America, and South America.
In South Africa the number of rhinos poached began to increase at a steady rate from 2007-2015, 5,061 rhinos were brutally killed. Elephants in Africa are also on a decline of population, according to records an Elephant is killed every 15 min by poachers. In the last 10 years, 110,000 Elephants have been slaughtered for their tusk, which is Ivory. Many other species are in danger also of extinction from poaching.
There are three phases we find extremely important to help with anti-poaching efforts.
• K-9 units
• Equipment for survival in the bush
• Training for ranger position or anti-poaching unit
K-9 units have been proven to be beneficial in the capture of poachers.
Rangers and anti-poaching units need different types of equipment for survival in the bush, such as camping equipment, night goggles, night scopes, clothing, boots, hats, laptops, two-way radios, watches, handcuffs, first aid kits. These are just a few of the items they need.
The training of rangers and anti-poaching units is extremely important to the survival of wildlife that is in demand by poachers.
