Deployment Success

The true measure of our success lies in the deployment of the Tracker Academy and Rhino Guardians graduates, and we’re proud to report a deployment success rate exceeding 90%. Within the Rhino Guardians program, this figure reaches an exceptional 100%, a testament to the calibre of training and mentorship provided.

These graduates emerge as frontline defenders of wildlife, patrolling vast landscapes, safeguarding endangered species, and combating the threats posed by poaching and habitat destruction. Their commitment to conservation embodies the spirit of our initiatives, inspiring hope and driving change in the face of adversity.

The Tracker Academy and the Rhino Guardians project are examples of the kind of positive impact that can be achieved through community-based conservation efforts. By training people in skills such as tracking, anti-poaching, and environmental monitoring, these projects empower local communities to take an active role in preserving their natural heritage. The ripple effect of these initiatives extends far beyond the immediate conservation efforts, providing opportunities for employment, education, and community development.

The reality is that endangered species and their continued protection is an around-the-clock, 365-day-a-year effort. It is expensive, and it takes boots on the ground! We are extremely proud to partner with Tracker Academy to ensure that for generations to come, these animals will live a protected life, and for those of you who want to join the fight please contact Alex van den Heever at the Tracker Academy to see where you can create a difference alex@nns.co.za.
