Wildlife crime is sweeping the planet. The illegal trafficking of wildlife is now one of the world’s largest criminal industries, with repeated links to terrorism networks.
High Target Species such as elephant, rhino, tiger and gorilla are being hunted to extinction. These animals are the most difficult to protect, as poachers go to the most extreme lengths to kill them. If we can protect these animals, then entire ecosystems are safe.
Anti-poaching rangers form the first and last line of defence for nature. Without the right training, equipment and management they cannot defend the World’s natural heritage for future generations.
We must support these brave warriors – The true hero’s in today’s society, tasked with protecting the heart and lungs of Planet Earth.
