    I will respond from a forum and aawdc perspective and I truly hope that something comes of it, unfortunately my experience so far with the "Anti poaching" establishment is that cash is king and that it was very splintered and full of politics and egos.

    I had a forum member who was prepared to persoanlly spend R10K on items for the anti-poaching units and approached the guy in charge of counter poaching in one of the provincial parks boards and asked for a list, he was happy but I still don't have a list a couple of months down the line and offers of help etc at other places seemed to fall on deaf ears.

    I would love to help. This particular fund or initiative is a very good one. I have decided to donate money rather.

    Default Caution

    Hi,

    I am not quite sure how the 4x4 community can help, but assume the methodolgy will be discussed.

    Just a word of caution before we all jump in our cars and go poacher hunting. If you do come accross something, these guys will shoot first and ask questions later. This is a problem that even proffesional rangers face.

    However, well done all.

    Cheers

    Fluffy, the idea is to hear what they have to say. I want some "kickback" on this.

    If I am asked to patrol, anywhere in any park, and have eyes on the ground and air,I am in.

    If I am to donate money, I am out.
    I am issued a firearm, I am out.
    If I am asked to look for poachers, I am out.
