The organization was established to directly support anti-poaching efforts on the ground in Africa, as a result of a wave of support for wildlife expert and professional guide, Rory Young.
In consultation with experts in investigations, special operations, law enforcement and more, Young developed a new approach to combatting poaching.
Conventional anti-poaching methods are borrowed from military and other sources. Poachers, though often skilled fighters, do not conduct military campaigns and are highly adept at evading detection: Conventional military practices do not apply.
A comprehensive doctrine was developed specifically for the complex and organized crime that poaching is, that addresses all its facets with effective, objective and inexpensive solutions.
This doctrine is what Chengeta Wildlife teaches, and is explained in A Field Manual for Anti-Poaching Activities.
Training is conducted within local and international laws and is adapted to suit local conditions and sensitivities. The doctrine is easily harmonized with standard operating procedures, local laws and organizational structures.
