Bandit, the dog that protects rhinos and elephants
When we talk about conservation and the survival of a species, it is generally with the aim of preservation for future generations. However, if the poaching epidemic continues at its current rate we will almost certainly see the demise of the African elephant and black rhino within ten years – our own generation.
Man has systematically brought these species to the brink of extinction and, with this in mind, it may be time to let man pass the anti-poaching baton to dogs.
A Bandit a day keeps the poachers away!
