The black rhino is critically endangered with only 5,000-5,400 remaining. This conservancy in Zimbabwe is doing it's part to bring them back from the brink by breeding black rhinos. They look after a host of other animals also and provide an amazing place to get involved in conservation!
The pangolin is the world's most illegally traded mammal and is disappearing fast. Eye Of The Pangolin is the story of two men on a mission to share the wonder of all four species of African pangolin on camera for the first time ever.
In Kenya, a brave group of rangers are working to protect the last two northern white rhinoceros in the world. Years of widespread poaching and civil war savaged the rhinos’ populations, and the last few who remain are now protected by 24/7 armed guards at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy.
"Absolutely amazing! I had the opportunity to volunteer here for one week and had the best time of my life. Planning on coming back in October! Everyone was so friendly and helpful and the bond and love between the Rangers and animals is astonishing! The work that is put into this conservation site and the dedication from the Rangers and their staff is beautiful! Can't wait to come and volunteer again!"
"There is not enough space to tell you completely why Ol Pejeta is probably the BEST conservancy in Africa, but the high quality & standards set by the conservancy are second to none, as are its rangers, a special mention for Solomon. The infrastructure is maintained to very high standards and the excellent livestock/wildlife programme is an example to all. The great work being done with the last 3 Northern white Rhinos is amazing."
"The work that is done by TacTrac makes an immense contribution to conservation in Africa and more widely. It is also one of the most positive programmes that an individual can experience, developing the skills to make a real difference in the fight against poaching, and, as importantly, it delivers profound personal development."
"The past 5 weeks I had the privilege of being part of the Tac Trac team. It is not only an anti-poaching course, we became a family. I just wanted to thank everyone who was part of this journey of mine in saving wildlife. It opened my eyes to the small things in life and showed me what really mattered in life! If you are interested don't go look for the second best when Tac Trac is the best. By deeds not words."
"I think the last 5 weeks i learned more than I've learned in the 12 years in school. What a great experience and learning curve. I would really recommend this course to anyone who wants to help in not only saving the rhinos but conserving all wildlife against the poachers. Thanks to all the instructors who is helping to train the best of best anti-poachers, all of you with your own skills and knowledge thank you for helping us understand what there is to do and that there is a lot of work to be done. My thoughts go out to all the APU's out there and the Tac Trac team! BY DEEDS NOT WORDS!"
"I'm from overseas and recently completed the Tac Trac APU Level 1 course at Limpopo. The level of training provided combined with the facilities and top notch instructors is incredible. The amount of information and specialised training absorbed in this five week course is mind blowing. If you want to do something with your life where you can truly make a difference in this world this is the course for you. You must be dedicated however but if you want to really push yourself and find your mental and physical limits while training within a team environment you will not be disappointed. I'd score Tac Trac a 10 if I could. Thank you Tac Trac."
"Me and my friend have been treated with such kindness, professionalism and an obvious will to help out, that you very seldom see today. Dustin truly cares and want's you to have a great experience and what ever the problem is, he will not only have the greatest of patience he will make sure everything falls into place. I am sure I speak both for me and my friend, when I say we have nothing but the best to say about Dustin and Global Guardians Conservation Fund. Very highly recommended."
"5 weeks of serious, intensive training, but definitely worth every penny if you take this line of work serious, if you are mentally tough, and want to make a difference in the ever growing battle against poaching in all forms, I recommend it."
"Whether it be walking elephants by sunset, or feeding endangered rhinos, the programme delivered beyond expectations. Thank-you to all staff and the family at Imire for a wonderful experience and ongoing support of African wildlife!"
