Saving Private Rhino

The “Saving Private Rhino” initiative has been established to ensure the future conservation of Africa’s rhino and wildlife heritage, by providing the most comprehensive, integrated anti-poaching solution available to every private game reserve in Africa which needs assistance defending its wildlife.

In August 2011 Aquila Private Game Reserve was hit by a horrific poaching incident that saw three rhino attacked, with two of the rhino brutally killed and de-horned. Free counter-poaching security training courses have been established, to teach rangers how to protect themselves as well as their rhino and wildlife population.

Aquila was responsible for a R30million ivory arrest, the largest ever in the Western Cape. On a separate occasion, two Zambian nationals were arrested trying to sell a baby rhino horn covered in blood.
