  • Curbing illegal activities that threaten forest integrity
  • De-snaring
  • Monitoring tree degeneration
  • Involving neighbouring communities in conservation work

Rhino Ark support for AJSU includes provision of:

  • Training for the team
  • A patrol vehicle
  • Cameras
  • Hand-held GPS units to strengthen their field work
