Thula Thula has a dedicated Wildlife Protection and Anti Poaching Unit working 24/7 for safety of our precious wildlife.
Due to the ongoing war against poaching Thula Thula is constantly upgrading the Anti-Poaching infrastructure, besides getting information from the national Anti-Poaching Intelligence, we use bush trap cameras that send images on real time through to our security team as early warning signs, we have recently added a permanent K9 unit as part of the patrolling team.
Ashley is a 2-year-old German Sheppard, born from a line of South African Police Force K9’s. He was trained by an ex-member of the South African Police force with 25 years’ experience.
These armed guardians of our wildlife, work day and night doing fence patrols, snare sweeping across the reserve and they are deployed for ambushes in order to prevent wildlife crime. Added to this special unit, we also have the WILDLIFE PROTECTION AND RHINO MONITORING TEAM dedicated to guarding our rhinos, Thabo and Ntombi, Mona and Sissi, and our new rhino male Rambo.
The protection, rehabilitation and survival of our wildlife is an absolute priority at Thula Thula.
THANK YOU to our donors for your amazing help and contributions, as we would not be able to do it without you.
