UIntrans VW boost support for anti poaching in KNP

Unitrans Volkswagen is the proud establishers of the Unite against Poaching initiative. The handing over of this 4 x 4 Volkswagen Amarok  by Kevin Gillmer , Divisional Chief Executive of Unitrans Volkswagen; to Major General Johan Jooste, Officer Commanding Special Projects Kruger National Park, confirms our sustained commitment to ensuring that the field rangers on the ground have the skills and equipment to allow them to continue their fight against Rhino poaching.  This vehicle will facilitate General Jooste having access to all areas of the Kruger National Park in his on-going battle against the scourge of rhino poaching.

Unite against Poaching have also just renewed the 4 X 4 Volkswagen Amarok, which is already in use for the ground transport of the Unitrans Volkswagen Tracker Hounds Unit in the Kruger National Park.  These tracker hounds have been identified as a significant weapon in the counter poaching arsenal and we are extremely proud to be associated with this particular initiative.

 It is in the knowledge that a well-trained and equipped field ranger is one of the most significant weapons in the war against poaching that we confirm our commitment to fighting poaching in our country. Unitrans Volkswagen, through the Unite against Poaching fund are honoured to have been able to contribute over R 6 million to the fight against rhino poaching, within SANParks. Together with the SANParks Honorary Rangers we will continue to empower the dedicated field rangers in our National Parks in the protection of our rhinos.  Unitrans Volkswagen certainly proudly stands up to our motto to “Unite against Poaching”.
