Security & Monitoring
Ol Jogi is taking the lead in this fight against wildlife crime and we endeavour to be a model for conservation not only in Kenya but in the world. We consistently evolve our policies and techniques in order to remain competitive and ahead of the game.
In all the countries and other areas within Kenya that host rhinos, different monitoring levels and techniques are applied. At Ol Jogi we attribute significant resources and effort to rhino monitoring and we pride ourselves as being at the forefront of world monitoring; on average we sight every one of our sixty four rhinos every day, 365 days a year (ASF of 1.00). Some of the techniques used but not limited to are:
VHF horn transmitters incorporated into the horn to allow for tracking.
A significant task force of rangers, situated on hill tops, ground patrol and in vehicles.
Utilisation of aircraft several times a week.
Cross-checking system of identification of rhinos
Annual ID photographic database of all rhinos.
Ear-notching system for further identification and to ‘sync’ to the ‘National Identity Number’ system of KWS.
GPS (Global Positioning System) coordinates of all individuals that are incorporated into GIS software mapping for home ranges.
