The Wildlife Horrors of Poaching

During a patrol with Hope for Wildlife Helicopter Services and Wildscapes Veterinary Services in a South African reserve, our team encountered the dire consequences of poaching, finding numerous animals, including 9 buffaloes, killed by poachers. A hyena was collared for research to enhance reserve management. This effort, supported by Rhino Connect and the Wildlife Emergency Fund, underscores the urgent need for increased awareness and support to combat poaching.

Frontline Conservation: Emergency Rhino Dehorning at Loskop

As part of our long-standing partnership at Loskop and the greater restoration and expansion of the reserve in a first of its kind partnership with the provisional government, we stepped in to assist in the emergency dehorning of six rhinos.

Ego-Free Collaboration: Uniting for the Rhino

Showcasing a powerful synergy between government, private entities, and NGOs, we helped dehorn the last two rhinos in the Lionspruit region. Provincial governments often do not have the appropriate funds for such operations. That’s where we, at WeWild Africa, in collaboration with DCM Surfaces, step in – to fill the gaps and ensure that no animal is left vulnerable due to lack of resources.
