22 May Geoffrey – Head Instructor For Tac Trac
Episode – 44 – By Travel Worth Living
In this episode I get to talk with Geoffrey, the head instructor for Tac Trac. The Tac Trac Combat Tracking initiative was started as a way to combat the onslaught of wildlife crimes committed in Africa. As an NGO, they provide training for anti-poaching rangers who are then mobilised to work in various reserves across Africa.
Geoffrey began working as a ranger at the age of 17. Since then, he’s spent years honing his tracking and anti-poaching skills, first as a ranger and now as an instructor. During our conversation we talk about the threats rangers face, how they apprehend and stop poachers, and what it takes to spend days at a time out in the field.
