R255 Million Donation to fight Rhino Poaching

The Howard G. Buffett Foundation, a private foundation in the United States, the Nature Conservation Trust, a South African public benefit organization and South African National Parks announced an historic R255 million (US$23.7 million), three-year initiative to combat rhino poaching in Kruger National Park and test anti-poaching tactics that can be applied in other regions of Africa.

The effort in Kruger will create an Intensive Protection Zone (IPZ) using sophisticated detection and tracking equipment and infrastructure on the ground and in the air, elite canine units and highly-trained ranger teams and improved intelligence gathering and observation and surveillance systems.
