We have received the following feedback from Jeff Muntifering, the Save the Rhino Trust’s scientific advisor:
"Of interest, we had a zero poaching holiday season thanks to the efforts from the rangers, SRT and police. To date, we have only lost 1 rhino in the past 12 months! With our community rangers with NGO, Gov and Police support together with an expanding outreach programme, we may have finally found a winning recipe. Teamwork wins!"
