NEW YORK, Feb. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The GES Africa Conservation Fund (GACF) today announced it is seeking financial donors to support anti-poaching helicopter operations to save endangered rhinos in Southern Africa.
GACF is sponsoring a critically needed quick reaction anti-poaching helicopter, which will operate throughout the Mozambique/South Africa border, including the Greater Lebombo Conservancy (GLC). This area has the world's "highest concentration of poaching syndicates, and is the most critical piece of land on earth for the fight to save the White Rhino."
GACF is sponsored by the GES Group, which operates the leading Wildlife Management operation in Africa and protects the largest private rhino population in the world with over 1,500 rhinos under direct protection in Africa.
GACF is battling well-funded and armed criminal syndicates in Southern Africa. With each horn or tusk that leaves the borders of Africa the poaching rings becomes exponentially more powerful and better equipped, elevating the problem to the point where they will become unstoppable.
It is essential that poachers are apprehended and poached articles recovered even after animals have been killed. This would not bring back the animals, but the recovery of the contraband starves the criminal poaching cartels of funds; funds that are being used to grow their empires of crime in Africa.
GACF is a non-profit entity dedicated to protecting and preserving both South Africa's and the world's most endangered species. GACF is sponsored by the GES Group, which operates the leading Wildlife Management operation in South Africa and protects the largest private Rhino population in the world with over 1,500 Rhinos under direct protection. GACF was established as a direct response to international wildlife exploitation and poaching. Organized crime within the wildlife arena is crippling the animal populations as well as severely changing the face of conservation. GES applies specialized anti-poaching operations, general security, and intelligence services.
