In response to the poaching crisis faced by our country, Flying for Rhino and Conservation was started in 2013 to provide air support over the conservation areas that harbor our rhino.
Aerial surveillance forms a key part of the fight against animal poaching in our vast national parks and conservation areas, but the high running cost of traditional aeroplanes and helicopters means that they can not always be used efficiently.
Flying for Rhino and Conservation has found a workable solution to this problem. Through the use of a Light Sport Aircraft called a Bat Hawk, we are able to provide air support for extended periods of time due to the Bat Hawk’s low running cost.
Flying for Rhino and Conservation’s support is not exclusively for the rhino anti-poaching teams. We offer air support for the conservation of all endangered wildlife including lion, leopard, elephant and even our indigenous flora.
