Dog Tracking Unit

In 2011 The HoneyGuide Foundation established its k9 Tracking Unit.

Dogs have the ability to read a story through their nose and they have been a game changer for wildlife protection in northern Tanzania. HoneyGuide have the only K9 Unit in the field of anti-poaching in Tanzania, in all areas where the dogs have been allocated, the poaching of elephants has been dramatically reduced.

Sharing this resource over large landscapes between different conservation partners has enabled the K9 Unit to be an affordable, innovative and highly effective solution to the protection of wildlife.

Our Philosophy

Asilia operates in some of the most spectacular wild places in Africa.  Yet they are fragile, under immense pressure, where the needs of both people and wildlife are often juxtaposed.

Empowering both people and places is essential if the habitats, upon which we all depend, are to survive.

We’ve selected a number of reputable and effective local partners as the drivers of these interventions.   These partners tackle the issues of education, community upliftment and wildlife conservation in meaningful ways, getting to the source of the problems rather than treating the symptoms.
