Dog Tracking Unit
The anti-poaching teams consist of three dogs and two dog handlers. One team operates in the Serengeti National Park, the other in the Manyara-Tarangire ecosystem. Assigning dogs to track poachers has reduced poaching in these areas. Maintaining the dog teams is important to keeping poaching levels down.

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.
