Covid-19 has brought financially tough times for all of us. We work hard to conserve the wildlife under our protection and to support our staff. We realise that there are many other ways to build your awareness of the illegal wildlife trade, but with us the journey will be dynamic. Every other month you will be invited, past and present learners, to a live Q&A session with one of our knowledgeable field staff. Your money will go to supporting what we at Wildlife ACT believe in:

Real, Focused Conservation.

We are also offering GIFT VOUCHERS that allows you to buy this awareness journey for family or friends. Please contact us should you want to choose this option.


Do you really know what is happening out there?

This course is an awareness course and aims to take you on a journey so as you can better understand how and why poaching happens, which species are targeted and why? How anti-poaching teams work, with and without K9 Units. We will show you how illegal wildlife products move from poachers to handlers, across international boundaries and to sale points in other continents.

There is a darkness and a sadness in what is happening, but there are also incredibly successful initiatives, campaigning organisations and individuals out there. We will showcase them to you and show where and how you can join the fight to end the third biggest illegal trade.

The Wildlife ACT Way!


Wildlife ACT works hard to protect endangered species, to provide them security of habitat and space to breed. We monitor tagged species, work with incredibly endangered birds, run education and awareness programs as far as we can reach and boldly put ourselves forward in support of initiatives that are helping to combat that initial phase of the illegal wildlife trade - poaching.




Tracking of priority species to ensure the survival of each and every individual, is a core aspect of Wildlife ACT’s on-the-ground operations, be this through monitoring and tracking technology, our support and partnering with K9 anti-poaching dog units and our ultlisation of the skills of incredible trackers.

Poaching, Trafficking & The Illegal Wildlife Trade

An Awareness Course

This awareness course comprehensively covers the entire trade from the tracking down of poachers in the field, you learn how to assess and read a crime-scene, how to work with anti-poaching dogs and organise patrols, to tracking the products as they leave protected areas and begin transit to demand countries.


You will learn how widely spread the trade is, how contraband is intercepted and tracked en-route, where it is being sold, how large the demand for product is and how cyber-crime and even cyber-poaching work.
