​R250m Donation a Boost for KNP

The South African National Parks uses the R250 million donated by American philanthropist and businessman, Buffet, to help boost measures to protect the KNP from poachers

The South African National Parks has used the R250 million donated by American philanthropist and businessman, Howard G Buffet, to help boost measures to protect the Kruger National Park (KNP) from poachers.

Major general, Johan Jooste, head of the anti-poaching operations, points out that, “The park has upgraded their protection by upgrading ranger points by enabling them to operate helicopters, house the K9 dogs and the training of the rangers, making sure that their equipment is up to scratch.”

KNP has been described as being the size of Israel, yet it only has four helicopters protecting the entire park.
