Our mission is to support and protect rhino and other endangered species in the Greater Kruger region, especially those impacted by poaching. A goal that was founded on our expertise with the rehabilitation and release of rhino.
In partnership with local and global community engagement, research and education initiatives, we take a holistic approach to inspire action, raise awareness and achieve real results for wildlife survival now - and for future generations.
It is our mission to ensure the survival of elephants and their habitats and to promote harmonious co-existence between elephants and people. Due to the high population of elephants on the TNR we have experienced severe tree damage. We have flagged this as a high priority project to protect as many large trees and vulnerable trees on the property as we can manage.
Together with Elephants Alive, we intend introducing three methods, namely 1) Bee Hives; 2) Mesh wire wrapping and pasting 3) Rock packing.
GKEPF, along with the participating reserves, assists with protection of the largest concentration of rhinos in the world and covers more than 400,000 ha throughout the Greater Kruger Area, South Africa and into Mozambique.
GKEPF collaborates with stakeholders and partners, provides ranger support, air support, training and operational support to poaching activity in the area with the allocation of substantial resources by both the state and private sector. Constant planning, monitoring and action protects global wildlife for future generations.
Our efforts are focused on the surrounding communities and making sure that we use local suppliers and artisans as often as we can.
Our philosophy is ‘Unity is Strength’ so many of our projects are designed to empower people and small businesses by providing them with the tools to build a fulfilling, sustainable life.
