Innovative application of IT infrastructure, managed services, data analytics, multiscreen communication, secure network and data flow, a point-to-point reserve network, CCTV cameras, and biometric scanning have reduced the number of incursions into the reserve by 68%. Poaching in the reserve dropped by 96% in its first year. And, in 2017 and 2018, there were zero rhinos poached. In addition, we’ve helped reduce incursions into the reserve by 68%.
We’re building on three years of success of the Connected Conservation programme under the Dimension Data brand. Our vision is to eliminate all forms of poaching, globally, through continued innovation in intelligent technology, expanding the solution in southern Africa into the Kruger Park, and protecting more vulnerable land and water species in more countries.
With the expansions into Africa, the aim is to bring together national and private park management, sharing info and tactics to safeguard more species across various terrains.
