Pet food company Hill’s Pet Nutrition has launched a five-part miniseries celebrating and profiling K9 anti-poaching units in SA’s nature reserves.
The documentary, Making Contact: A K9 Conservation Series, aims to help keep paws and boots on the ground to fight poaching.
The miniseries tells the stories of watchdogs Casey, Ghost, Gecko, Ceazer, Kilalo and the brave men and women who work alongside them to protect the country's wildlife in Kruger National Park and other nature reserves.
“K9 units in anti-poaching operations, involving a trained handler and canine, are crucial tools in efforts to curb the poaching and wildlife crime in SA.
“The series tells the personal stories of companionship, perseverance and connection, while highlighting key organisations, protected areas and individuals on the ground. All of which are dedicated to the protection of our natural heritage,” said the company.
