Hunting the poachers

post-image
Wildlife crime is sweeping the planet. The illegal trafficking of wildlife is now one of the world?s largest criminal industries, with repeated links to terrorism networks. Modern-day poachers have evolved and routinely utilise military tactics and equipment to kill high-target species, such as elephants, rhinos and gorillas. The non-profit International Anti-Poaching Foundation (IAPF) has established a Ranger Training Academy to instruct wildlife rangers, both men and women, in military tactics to hunt the poachers. The legendary primatologist Jane Goodall is an IAPF patron. Unmanned drones are refitted with night-vision technology to track intruders. The IAPF is now registered in four separate countries across southern and east Africa, and the rangers help protect the animals within nearly three million hectares of wilderness every day. www.iapf.org
