Empangeni sisters raise funds for game reserve K9 unit

Two Empangeni sisters are helping to raise funds for the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park’s (HiP) anti-poaching unit

A lifetime of involvement in conservation has opened the eyes of two Empangeni sisters, who want to do their bit in the war against rhino poaching.

Bronwyn and Savannah Killick have for many years been involved behind the scenes in the Imfolozi MTB Challenge, an annual fundraiser for Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park’s (HiP) anti-poaching unit.

After making the decision to further assist in fundraising for the park, the sisters engaged with WILDTRUST, a well-established conservation NPO.

After the NPO outlined the work and needs of the HiP K9 unit, Bronwyn and Savannah launched their fundraising appeal.
A total of R150 000 is required to fund the training of field rangers in the K9 unit – R37 000 for 10 days’ training, with four courses required.

Bronwyn and Savannah appeal to animal lovers, and members of the public in general, in both a corporate and personal capacity, to support this worthwhile initiative.

Donors will in turn receive a Section 18A certificate for tax purposes.

“You will be contributing directly to the preservation of our endangered southern white rhino and black rhino populations in the park,” said WILDTRUST CEO Dr Roelie Kloppers.
