Rhino Ambassadors

The Rhino Ambassadors are a sister organization to the Black Mamba Anti-poaching Unit also falling under the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere Region Environmental Monitors Programme.   The focus of the Rhino Ambassadors is to go to the heart of the source and to talk one on one with general community members – which knowingly include poachers and families of poachers and to talk to them on a direct and one on one basis as regards the importance of caring for our environment and the value of environmental conservation.

Communications occur in personal homes, public spaces and in schools - wherever they are welcomed and where they are able to get themselves heard.   As a pro-active strategy they are achieving huge success and are proving a valuable resource within the communities themselves.
