SANParks’ K9 Units #WorldRangerDay
Dogs are rangers too! And today, on World Ranger Day, we pay tribute to our K9 heroes.
SANParks’ K9 Anti- Poaching Units are considered game changers in the fight against poaching in our national parks. During 2017, all encounters with poachers that involved dogs resulted in arrests.
These remarkable dogs can track poachers in the field over impressive distances and can detect firearms, ammunition and wildlife products that enter and exit through park gates. Together with their handlers, they work tirelessly and bravely to protect our wildlife, often under extremely dangerous conditions.
Rambo Themba, a Belgian Malinois tracker dog was donated to the K9 Unit in the KNP exactly a year ago. If Rambo Themba could tell us his stories from the past 365 days, it would certainly be an interesting read… Our thanks go to Airliner4Animals (A4A) for making such a generous contribution to the fight against poaching.
