Anti Poaching Canine Unit
The Grumeti Fund Canine Unit is a dedicated detection and tracking dog unit committed to our ongoing quest to stay one step ahead of poachers. The permanent presence of our rescue dogs – DJ, Radar, Oke, and Tony – and their skilled handlers enhance the Anti-Poaching Department’s ability to apprehend poachers.
The Grumeti Fund envisions using the Canine Unit across the Serengeti ecosystem, in partnership with government organizations and other conservation NGO’s to expand the impact. Ideally, we see the dogs working to deter poachers from entering the protected area altogether.
