For years, I have been working on anti-poaching and against illegal trade of animals. Now, I haven’t had time to work out in the field for a while but decided it had been too long so I went back to wonderful South Africa and saw all my great friends in the town of Hoedspruit!

I have so much respect for all these people who work so hard to stop poaching and keep our wildlife alive so you, as a tourist, can come down and see them. I mostly work with the anit-poaching unit ‘Protrack’ which makes a big difference down there.

This time around, I also had the honour to work with the ‘Flying 4 Rhino & Conservation’ organisation. I flew with Rob on an anti-poaching patrol. I must say I was really happy to get this chance to see how this amazing pilot works and what they do up there to stop the poachers. Everything is very different from up in the air than down on ground. And they are such a big help for the guys on the ground.

Three rhinos are poached every day in South Africa so we really need to protect them so our children and grandchildren also get a chance to see them. Do you also want to support these guys?
