Help our work with Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya to train and look after their best counter offensive yet: an elite team of anti-poaching dogs by becoming a Helping Rhinos APU dog adopter from just £5 a month.
An anti-poaching unit (APU) dog adoption also makes a fantastic gift for your friend, loved one, relative or colleague.
In the last 10 years more than 7,000 African rhino have been illegally killed. Belgian Malinois, German Shepherd or Bloodhound, Ol Pejeta’s dogs, once trained, are capable of search, track and attack of poachers and make highly effective members of the anti-poaching teams to help protect rhinos and other wildlife.
Dogs are brilliant hunters. They have tremendous stamina, a great sense of smell, and are extremely fast. They can alert Rangers to the presence of a poacher up to a kilometre away. With dogs anti-poaching teams are now much better equipped to track at night and can cover greater ground. There is no technology that works better than our canine friends.
Since Ol Pejeta introduced their dog patrols, they have had had just two poaching incidents in the last two years – an impressive statistic that must continue.
