Southern African Wildlife College Aerial Support

Southern African Wildlife College Aerial Support

R79 000 for anti-poaching and surveillance through the Aerial Unit

Aerial Wing support

Aerial surveillance is an effective tool that is used to combat poaching and gain intelligence from the air. Conserv Earth is supporting the Southern African Wildlife College with 2 hours of flying time each month. The hours in the air are used for reacting to poaching incidents and deploying field rangers and the K9 Unit into the field. The plane is also used for gathering statistical data on threatened species and their movements, thereby allowing for better informed personnel on the ground.

Surveillance hours are spent on conservation operations such as rhino monitoring, dehorning and research, anti-poaching, student training and rescuing orphaned animals due to poaching.

PROJECT GOALS

  • Improve security in the Greater Kruger National Park through increased aerial surveillance.
  • Gather relevant statistical data on wildlife populations and movement
  • Provide information for the better deployment of rangers
  • Train wildlife pilots
  • Provide airwing support to help counter poaching operations

PROJECT OUTCOMES

  • Improved security in the Greater Kruger National Park
  • The gathering of cost effective, real-time information from the air including statistical data on threatened species and their movements is also enabled, thereby allowing for better informed personnel on the ground within the Greater Kruger National Park in support of protecting threatened wildlife species.
