The Southern African Wildlife College has begun using Very High Frequency (VHF) ear tags as a rhino monitoring technology to replace notching. This is experimental work that is now being comprehensively tested on monitoring rhino movement in particular. We have phased out the the notching programme in favour of this new and improved technology that is expected to give us accurate, valuable data on individual rhino.

We shared this story recently on our Facebook page, but here it is again complete with a series of images that depict this astonishing encounter. Our full story on the website can be found here: http://wildlifecollege.org.za/news-media/articles/extraordinary-hyena-attack/

There’s never a typical day in the office for the Southern African Wildlife College’s aerial support unit. When the College’s pilot was called by Manyeleti Reserve to assist in tracking down an injured white rhino, he could never have predicted the extraordinary chain of events that unfolded…
Nature took its course while the pilot watched from above, waiting for a ground team to arrive. The hyenas found the injured rhino and incredibly pushed the animal into the waterhole where it eventually drowned.
Sadly, the rhino's injuries have been determined to not exclude the possibility of attempted poaching.

The Savannah Africa Aircraft, a pioneering tool in the field of counter-poaching. Working in collaboration with the free-running pack dogs and field rangers to bring a new dimension to mitigating wildlife crime. Here she is parked in her hangar on campus, her donors embossed on her flanks: @action4ifaw @ivan.carter @ourhornisnotmedicine Greater Kruger Environmental Protection Foundation.

I can’t stop watching this! ❤️🐘 A preview of a very special video, created by the talented @naiya.raja, telling our story of the Tsavo Elephant Collaring Operation! #savetheelephants

Aerial patrols are on the increase in the Serengeti National Park in Northern Tanzania thanks to funding from the ECF. A senior warden in the Serengeti Management, supported by @frankfurt.zoological.society (FZS) has received training as a private pilot and is now joining all patrol flights. The park, which is home to a significant number of elephants, is coming under increasing threat as elephant populations decline elsewhere in Tanzania. #elephants #antipoaching #aerialsupport #FrankfurtZoologicalSociety #Tanzania Photo: SENAPA/FZS

Day two of our media makeover began at the hangar on campus where pilot Bruce Mc Donald arrived to take @villierssteyn and @kevinmaclaughlin from @afribird up into the morning skies to capture aerial imagery of our new ranger camp and dog unit. The Savannah also flew to a neighbouring reserve to meet some donors out on safari! All in a morning's work while while our Higher and Advanced certificate students were sitting their exams.

Tsavo Collaring Operation ✈️🐘🚁 #savetheelephants #widesatao

✈️🐘 #savetheelephants

2017 Proved to be a very busy year for the SAWC's air-wing with 863 hours being flown over this period. 2018 will no doubt require much the same input. Our aircraft continue to play a vital role in aerial support for anti-poaching and conservation. We would like to thank all of our donors who continue believing in us and for for keeping us in the sky.

Observing the team in action from the sky was incredible and I felt SO proud of everyone in that moment. The dedication, teamwork and efficiency were clear to see, even from the clouds. ✈️🐘🚁 #savetheelephants

Anti-poaching from the air.

The Southern African Wildlife College is actively involved in providing aerial support to anti-poaching, monitoring the 500 000 hectare Greater Kruger area in which it operates, training its students in ground-to-air patrols, and in training bush pilots.
