This weekend we were able to put two types of transmitters in Eric and Laikipia’s horns. These devices are a critical part of the rhino security plan and will allow us to keep close track of their movements. We also tipped their horns to ensure that they cannot hurt each other when they come into contact. A big thanks to TAWIRI and to @andre_uys_vet for the incredible veterinary work and support. Eric’s immobilisation was a bit more complicated than Laikipias, but both rhino are doing great. Today, Eric’s gate into a larger enclosure was opened ! 📷 by Scott Ramsay @love_wild_africa #grumetifund#conservation#rhino#eric#blackrhino#tanzania
This pic from @blackbeanproductions captures the intensity and dedication of the scouts. To make sure that the scouts are as prepared as possible for any type of encounter, they train daily. Here Gotera Gamba, the Head of Law Enforcement Operations leads the Special Operations Group on a training session in the rain. This image was captured for the documentary @edgeofexistencefilm which tells the challenging story of one the biggest issues being faced in this area - human wildlife conflict.
