Grumeti Fund K9 Unit – Rescue Dogs Help in the Fight Against Poaching
Working with the Grumeti Fund, and in line with Singita’s enhanced anti-poaching strategy, the company is pleased to introduce the Fund’s new Canine Unit.
The Grumeti Fund Canine Unit will assist the new scout force to find highly valued and trafficked wildlife contraband like ivory, rhino horn, pangolin scales, ammunition and snares. The dogs can search a car, house or any specific area that Singita’s anti-poaching team believes may have any illegal items. Since arriving the dogs have been trained to track scents over long distances. Singita’s aim is to discourage poachers from poaching, as they will quickly become aware that they have a much higher chance of being arrested, now that the Grumeti Fund has dogs working in the protected area.
