We fund and support a number of anti-poaching activities on private reserves in the Greater Kruger Area. This includes the provision of specialist equipment for anti-poaching.

Rhino Revolution UK Ltd. also funds dehorning of rhino, including our orphans when appropriate. Although this does not provide a long-term solution, we believe it deters poaching activity, particularly when it is publicised that the reserve has de-horned its rhino.
Uniquely, since 2012, we also use ex-racehorses for anti-poaching patrols on the Blue Canyon Conservancy, as the mounted guards can reach areas inaccessible to vehicles silently and efficiently. They can also look out for any signs of criminal intent from the elevated field of vision that horseback provides.
RR-UK has also funded the provision of bullet proof vests for the protection of APUs in the area.
