For #Nationaldogday we would like to recognise #Rangersnifferdogs as they play a very big role in conservation. Some of them are very tiny but have lethal senses and can smell contraband no matter how well hidden they are. This cute dog, from one of the projects we fund is so happy at work and seems to be doing a very god job

Conservationist Wayne Lotter, a powerful force taking on the Tanzanian ivory trafficking cartels, was killed last night in a shooting near Dar es Salaam. Through a combination of dogged determination and his self-effacing nature he created a powerful partnership with the National and Transnational Serious Crime Investigations Unit (NTSCIU) that had achieved real success against the crime networks. With the support of Wayne's organisation @pams_foundation in Tanzania https://pamsfoundation.org/ the NTSCIU arrested 1,398 poachers and ivory traffickers, 78% of whom were convicted for their crimes. This has been the first significant win against a wave of poaching that slashed Tanzania's elephant population by 60% between 2007 and 2016. Our deepest condolences to Wayne's family and his team.

In honour of the four rangers and a porter killed by an unidentified group of armed men in the Okapi Wildlife Reserve in the DRC last week, we are reminded of how many others have lost their lives or been injured in the line of duty. Being a park ranger is arguably one of the most dangerous jobs on the planet and today, on #WorldRangerDay, we would like to pay tribute to those courageous men and women who protect our parks, our landscapes and our endangered species, particularly those who have lost their lives in the line of duty. Without your commitment and dedication, much of our natural heritage would be lost. 📷 Frank af Petersens.
