Our veterinary team in Mozambique is supporting the Mozambican government implementing a regional initiative to dehorn all Rhinoceros in areas at high risk of poaching.
Following reports of one White Rhino bull roaming along the South African – Mozambique border our team deployed to the area in collaboration with the Karingani fixed wing, helicopter and ground team.
After a short search from the air, the large bull was found, darted, effectively dehorned and awoken without incident.
Dehorning is a last resource tool to protect Rhinos in high risk areas and evidence suggests that there are no significant impacts on the Rhinos survival and breeding rates.
Our work is only possible with your support, please donate to keep our teams creating hope from hurt.
