Donate to this absolutely vital ongoing requirement!
Tashinga Initiative Trust has implemented Specialist Tracking antipoaching Training courses since 2011, starting off for Rangers in Matusadona National Park and then rolling out to antipoaching Rangers in Middle and Lower Zambezi Valley since that time. The Trainers have been Zimbabweans Dolf Sasseen and the renowned Peter Clemence.
The courses provide for Parks Rangers to be qualified at Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Level in Specialist Tracking and other skills associated with antipoaching. Rangers respond very positively to these courses, and the skills gained through these and earlier courses have already been vital tools in anti-poaching operations. Many Rangers are based at extremely remote bases, where access is, in the best conditions, very challenging, let alone in the rainy season from December through to end April each year. Each Ranger faces the dense bush of the Zambezi Valley in all his patrols year round, and this antipoaching training provides him with skills so vital to his task.
Tashinga Initiative through its EU funded CITES MIKES project will be implementing its next Zambezi River based antipoaching training course in September 2018.
Please DONATE towards the ongoing training for dedicated Rangers of the Zambezi Valley in their wildlife protection efforts, through Tashinga Initiative Trust.
