Arguably one of the most important aspects of what Veterans for Wildlife does is capacity-building at ground-level. Local people and local organisations are ultimately the only ones who can arrest the poaching crisis in its tracks and reverse the damage already done. But they need our collective assistance.

Drawing upon years of experience, in diverse operating environments, whilst embedded with multiple host nation forces, Veterans for Wildlife volunteers are unparalleled in their ability to deliver world-class training. From fieldcraft, through command, leadership and management, to combat medicine and everything in between!

Of course, the African bushveld is a unique operating environment and our personnel are well aware that some techniques and procedures may not directly translate from other parts of the world. In the same breath, however, many of the underlying principles are universal. And it is at this basic, fundamental level that Veterans for Wildlife looks to transfer skills and knowledge.
