One of the greatest game changers in the fight against wildlife crime has been through the use of mans best friend in anti-poaching operations. A variety of breeds of dog are now being used across a wide range of capabilities. These include tracking down poachers, being used as attack dogs to bring down poachers in difficult circumstances and as scent detection dogs at airports, port facilities and within protected areas.
Packs of Fox Hounds are able to track a spoor at a full run thereby giving counter-poaching units a distinctive advantage of being able to save valuable time in catching up with poaching gangs. During a training exercise, I watched these dogs follow a 5km track in six minutes! Bloodhounds are being used effectively to follow tracks as old as 24 hours and Melanois’s have the advantage of being able to both track and attack. In recent cases in the Kruger National Park in South Africa, these dogs together with their handlers have tracked down poachers after having followed spoor for over 30 km’s in rugged and extremely difficult terrain.
Beagles, Spaniels and Labradors have become essential in detecting hidden weapons or animal parts such as ivory or rhino horn and they are now routinely used to search vehicles and people entering and leaving protected areas and in searching luggage and containers at ports and airports. The dog’s highly sensitive nose has speeded up and greatly improved the ability to successfully search through large quantities of shipping containers before they leave port.
Not only have dogs become such a vital component in the fight against poaching, but also it is also amazing to see the strong and affectionate bonds that develop between the dog and the handler with the dogs absolutely loving the work that they are doing. Dogs have definitely made it that much harder for wildlife criminals to succeed!

This is a photo of Kahle, a massive elephant bull, being transported to a wake up box to be woken up and loaded into a transporter truck. Kahle and a companion named Mvula were translocated by ERP, from Phinda Private Game Reserve to Samara Private Game Reserve, during this past weekend. The rhinos were looking on in astonishment at the sight of the large bull being transported (all rhino in Phinda have been dehorned).⁣

The capture process started at 06:00 on Saturday the 17th November and was completed by 09:30, with the bulls starting their mammoth journey to Samara. The capture entailed a vet darting the bulls from a helicopter with a ground crew responding to stabilise the elephants once they were immobilised. A flat bed crane truck was then used to load the bulls and transport them to a wake up box. The elephants were loaded upside down by their feet which is a perfectly safe method of loading. The elephants were then woken up in the wake up box and transferred to a large transporter truck which was used to transport the elephants across three provinces.⁣

The elephants were safely released, 24 hours after being loaded in a joint operation between Samara Private Game Reserve and ERP.⁣

We will be sharing footage of the release tomorrow.⁣

At #ERP, the life of every elephant and rhino matters. ⁣For more information on what we do, visit the link in our bio.

"We are sleepwalking towards the edge of a cliff.....If there was a 60 percent decline in the human population, that would be equivalent to emptying North America, South America, Africa, Europe, China and Oceania. That is the scale of what we have done." - Mike Barrett, executive director of science and conservation at WWF @wwf

It's Baraka's birthday! -
This wonderful rhino was one of the first to be born on Ol Pejeta, on the 20th of November 1994. After losing one eye to cataracts, and another in a fight, he was moved to a secure enclosure, as his chances of surviving in the wild were slim.
Since then, he has become a remarkable ambassador for his species. From local school children to international dignitaries, all who meet him are moved and inspired. He has a gentle, trusting temperament and loves nothing more than a mouthful of sugarcane and a delicious mud bath. -

As a child I was the best tree climber in our neighborhood. I was like a little #monkey.
I guess that’s why I felt so connected to this little fellow on my back.
P.S. I am usually not in favor of pics with wild animals. Monkeys are very sensitive animals and should not be kept as pets. This photo was taken at Monkey Jungle Miami, where 120 squirel monkeys roam free in a 15 acre forest.

Gruesome discovery of Czech tiger farm exposes illegal trade in heart of Europe
.
The raid was the culmination of five years of work carried out by the Czech police, customs authorities and environmental inspectorate, who say they have uncovered an organised ring of Czech and Vietnamese criminals illegally killing and processing protected big cats for the traditional Chinese medicine market.
.
Officials across Europe are now beginning to realise that illegal tiger farms are not just a problem in south-east Asia, but are also operating in the middle of the EU.
.
It took almost two years, but eventually Czech customs and police unravelled the network. At the top was Le Xuan Vu, a Vietnamese trader who would place the orders for the tigers. Berousek would then deliver them to the house of the taxidermist, a Czech hunting enthusiast called Miloš Hrozínek. Together with Vu, Hrozínek would dismember and cook the tigers in his house and shed.
.
Through covert surveillance operations, the officers understood that the gang could sell cubes of tiger stock, which in Chinese medicine is widely believed to strengthen bones and alleviate arthritis, for €60 (£52) per gram. The skins were worth from €2,000-€4,000 and the claws were worth €100 each. Though much of this product was clearly destined for Vietnam, authorities believe that a significant amount was also traded within the large Czech-Vietnamese community.

I am very honoured to be apart of the first ever Footprints of Hope project. On Saturday I will be flying out to South Africa to the Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary. 🛫🇿🇦🦏
Veterans for Wildlife is an amazing charity that was only established in 2016. Please follow them on Social Media and share the love. 💜

More info about ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️ Footprints of Hope Veterans Wellness Retreat is a two week intensive, fully immersive programme consisting of mentoring, animal-assisted therapy (AAT), TRiM, Therapeutic Art, Yoga Nidra, and Yin Yoga. It will take place at Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary, the worlds largest baby rhino sanctuary.
The charity Veterans for Wildlife is an international charity committed to the protection of wildlife and the world’s critically endangered species. By deploying highly skilled and experienced former service personnel, Veterans for Wildlife aims to play a key role in conservation and the prevention of wildlife crime.
The illegal trade in wildlife, which includes endangered species, illegal logging and fishing, is now the fourth largest criminal enterprise globally following drug smuggling, human trafficking and counterfeiting.

These 2 hour old baby black sea turtles, part of the green sea turtle family, head for the open Pacific ocean. About 1/1000 survive into adulthood. Absolutely incredible to witness these tiny little turtles getting swept into the huge waves!

“Save the Rhino estimates that there were 500,000 rhinos across Africa and Asia at the beginning of the 20th century. Today, the group says, there are 29,000 rhinos in the wild. Poaching and loss of habitat have put all rhino species in danger of extinction. 2013 Was also a Record Year for Rhino Poaching in South Africa.” — LiveScience These poaching practices are unlawful and unethical. Seeing these stunning animals innocently living their lives is a beautiful honor. I’m personally vowing not to visit countries with unethical trade and poaching policies. We must preserve these species so future generations can continue to learn about them! #stoppoaching #rhino #rhinoceros #big5 #savetherhino #africa #southafrica #safari #wildlife #wildlifephotography #saveanimals #endangeredspecies #sunset #travel #antipoaching #naturephotography #beautiful #animals #followforfollow #followback #followme #follow4follow #followtrain #gltlove #visitsouthafrica #ethicaltourism #preservenature #rhinoceros #instagood

A bit of good news to brighten up your Tuesday! In a modern day Noah’s Ark tale, 13 giraffe have been reintroduced to Majete in Malawi and are settling in well to their new home!
#Repost @africanparksnetwork with @get_repost

We are pleased to share that 13 giraffe have been successfully introduced to Majete Wildlife Reserve in Malawi for the first time! These giraffe travelled 2,500 km by truck, over three days, from South Africa to Malawi. They were monitored throughout their historic journey to ensure the safety of all of the animals, and were fully assessed before being released into Majete - where we are happy to share they are all doing very well . This translocation couldn’t have come at a better time, as just last Wednesday, the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species announced the worrying news that several giraffe subspecies are now Critically Endangered. But these giraffe have found a safe haven in Majete. These 13 giraffe follow a host of other animals who were reintroduced to Majete over the years - a total of 2,900 animals from 14 species including elephants, rhinos, lions and buffalo. Today, these wildlife populations are thriving and have grown to more than 12,000 animals who currently living within the reserve – with not one rhino or elephant having been lost to poaching since their introductions in 2003 and 2006. The restoration of Majete would not have been possible without the support of the local communities. And now, they have an opportunity to come and see giraffe for the very first time, living safely in the park that they themselves have helped to protect. This translocation effort was undertaken in partnership with @Giraffe_Conservation and the Department of National Parks and Wildlife, with additional support provided by the Sundaram Family.

The fastest land animal is also capable of tearing apart a wildebeest carcass. Usually, cheetahs are scavengers because their hunts are unsuccessful. They can only keep their speed for a short amount of time. After this, they are tired out. •

My guide and I were forced to stop the jeep on the trail when this ellie blocked the way. He was shaking a tall palm with his body to bring down the palm nuts, and he refused to budge off the trail until he had picked up each of them with his trunk. My guide was pissed, as he wanted to get back to camp for lunch. But I was thrilled, though slightly intimidated, as he just stood firm directly in front of the jeep and stared for the longest time.

Animals have their own rights on their life as we do, killing a human for our greed is a crime.
Then why not people look the same way towards killing of an animal ?
It's just another life.
Poaching has negative side-effects that affect local communities, wildlife populations, and the environment. It is a crime fueled by a lucrative black market trade of animal parts. The animal parts are sold as novelty items and are sold for their “medicinal” properties. Environmental groups, animal rights groups, government agencies.The United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), The World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF), and The International Anti-Poaching Foundation (IAPF) are leading international efforts to end wildlife poaching.
Effects on the Environment
Poaching is also dangerous to the environment.Our ecosystems are sensitive and must be preserved. The economic challenges of a community can lead to poaching, which in turn can lead to endangerment of different species.
The recent case of the killing of the tigress Avni has called uproar all over the country. An innocent animal was put to rest because of people's vested interests and the saddest part is that her killing is being justified. We need various species of flora and fauna in our environmental ecosystems so that it can maintain healthy and balanced. The survival of our own species depends on it.
