Unfortunately, many animals are at risk in their natural habitats as they can be poached for elements such as their horns, tusks or skin, which can then be bartered at a high value on the black market. Specifically, rhino horn and elephant ivory are high in demand as they are used as a status symbol or for traditional medicine.
Anti-poaching teams are specially trained in tactical defense to locate poachers and stop them in their tracks (literally!). Anti-poaching rangers work on the frontlines to protect endangered species, such as rhino, giraffe, and elephant. They also protect a variety of lesser known threatened species who live within the same habitats. If anti-poaching units can begin to work in more remote areas where species preservation is needed the most, we can ensure that wildlife will be protected for future generations to come.
