Ezemvelo rhino capture

In August this year I was fortunate enough to participate in a Rhino capture exercise coordinated by the Ezemvelo Game Capture Unit. It was such a privilege to observe such a dedicated team of professionals at work and also to learn so much about these wonderful animals and the constant threat that they are exposed to by poaching. I even manage to sneak a couple of training runs in around St Lucia, I must confess I was constantly looking over my shoulder in case there was a hippo that may have left the water to graze on the verge of the road!
