SUPPORTING PROTRACK'S ANTI POACHING TEAMS - AND SAVING OUR RHINO
Our trip to Protrack in Hoedspruit was fantastic. We delivered some very useful items for the Anti-Poaching teams and got to see the guys on the ground out on patrol, their training centre and our hosts Vincent, Leigh, Wayne and Kim are such wonderful people to be around - positive, fun, dedicated and have huge hearts. We look forward to seeing them again soon. We will continue to support you and raise awareness - Protect and Preserve.
A HUGE thanks to Resident Evil Productions and Davis Films / IMPACT Pictures – who have sponsored a very much needed Metal Detector and Pinpointer to help with quick Bullet retrieval in injured animals.
