THE STORY:

Rhinos, elephants, and other wildlife are being brutally killed in order to sell their horn, ivory, and other parts on the black market.  An estimated 40,000 elephants were slaughtered for their ivory in 2012.  There are approximately 25,000 rhinos left in Africa.  With over 600 rhinos already poached in 2013, at this rate the species will become extinct within our lifetime. 

Conservationists & park rangers are not prepared to fight this war on wildlife. 

You can help turn this tragedy into a story of success!

Prevent poaching; Protect wildlife; Preserve the species.

 

Statement of Mission: Our objective is to deploy a professional Specialized Interdiction Unit (SIU) on an as-needed, fast-reaction basis throughout South Africa, in an effort to increase overall security, and to help decrease the rate of poaching deaths in the country.

 

We have partnered with Project Unicorn, a documentary film project featuring Mykel Hawke and Marsh Mokhtari, designed to expose traditional medicine fallacies and the crime syndicates that fuel this barbaric demand.  On the front-line of this war against poaching, Project Unicorn will follow a team of 14-South African former special forces professionals tasked with protecting rhinos.

Mykel Hawke has graciously donated his time and expertise to lead the cause as a training consultant for this initiative, including the filming of Project Unicorn.   Mykel Hawke is a U.S. Army Special Forces "Green Beret" combat veteran with over 20 years of combined military, government contracting, and survival experience.

Marsh Mokhtari has taken a lead role in the cause by mixing his love of conservation, wildlife and travel as the host and executive producer of 'Project Unicorn', a documentary film focused on the abolition of rhino poaching. Marsh Mokhtari is a US-based TV host, producer and adventurer.

 

Call to Action: Your donation, no matter how big or small, will help tremendously as we work to gather the necessary funds and supplies. Together we can make this mission a success! Will you donate today?
