Story

We recently sent an expedition team to Mankwe Wildlife Reserve in South Africa. The aim of the trip was to discover the fascinating flora and fauna of Africa, whilst gathering resources and gaining an insight into the conservation issues faced here.

After spending the week with Lynne MacTavish and the rest of her team at Mankwe, hearing their stories and understanding the daily struggles that come with protecting this endangered species from the dangers of poachers, the team all felt compelled to take action and raise awareness of the issues faced which could easily bring both the black and white rhino to extinction.

ZooLab has given itself an ambitious target of £10,000 to be raised within 12 months. This money will go towards a number of things including: food and enrichment for the anti-poaching dogs, petrol for on site patrol vehicles, increased anti-poaching team, improved reserve infrastructure and additional security equipment.
