Poaching is more than killing an elephant or a rhino. Increasingly, poaching is conducted by well-funded and equipped criminals who are motivated by little risk and lots of money.
Poaching is more than killing an elephant or a rhino. Increasingly, poaching is conducted by well-funded, well-equipped criminals motivated by little risk and big money.
According to WWF to fuel the escalation of global poaching there is certainly the need for easy money by poor people also driven by the demand for ‘nature’ from rich countries, but in the form of illegal products: it is the welfare of the richest countries, especially Asia, to ‘arm’ poachers and feed an illegal crime that ranks 4th after drugs, counterfeit goods and human trafficking. If once poaching was practiced in a reduced form, in recent years this has turned into a global business that uses organized criminal networks and that in parallel carry out other illegal businesses such as weapons and drugs. Our enthusiastic dogs are specially trained to fight poachers.
Since 2017, we have been training canine units capable of detecting the presence of bait and poisoned meat and animals in both urban and forest and mountain environments.
