Paul, a former Royal Marine Commando and Veterans for Wildlife volunteer, needs your help! A native South African, Paul Brodrick left his home country to join the British military and saw service in Iraq and Afghanistan, and has most recently been passing on the benefit of his wartime and civilian experience as a Veterans for Wildlife volunteer. While Paul served with the Royal Marines in a front-line combat role, since leaving the military he has trained as a paramedic in South Africa, the UK as well as the USA. As a lover of wildlife and the African bush, Paul was keen to give something back and help arrest the poaching crisis, as best he could.

That is why he now heads up the delivery of medical training, on behalf of Veterans for Wildlife, to the rangers on the ground in South Africa.

In order to maximise the benefit of the training delivered by Paul and the team, the rangers need the right life-saving equipment. Just a small donation from you can help us achieve our target. Veterans for Wildlife is aiming to raise £5,000 this Christmas. This sum will allow us to purchase over 110 individual field medical kits for rangers, which includes the essentials for not only bleeding control, but also airway maintenance, CPR, burns and minor wounds. It comes in a zippered, MOLLE compatible pouch with room for additional supplies.

If you are able to donate even just a small sum or make a donation of medical equipment in kind, please click through to our Wild Crowd crowdfunding campaign. By making a donation you will be eligible to receive a Veterans for Wildlife wristband, #MadRhino lapel pin, #MadRhino peak cap, or even one year's membership to Veterans for Wildlife!
