The Boucher Rhino Legacy
Founded by former South African Cricket Legend, Mark Boucher, the organisation plays a significant role in conservation of Rhino in South Africa. The Boucher Legacy focuses on three key pillars:
PROSECUTION: Through the RhODIS DNA programme developed by Dr Cindy Harper at the University of Pretoria’s Faculty of Veterinary Science, we are aiming to get every living Rhino onto the DNA database housed at their Onderstepoort campus. This allows law enforcement to link the poaching of a particular Rhino carcass to the prepetrator, thereby getting the poachers convicted and behind bars.
CONSERVATION: Along with the DNA database work, we are partnering with Dr Sam Ferreira and the Veterinary Science Team in the Kruger National Park to collar 115 Rhino in certain key areas, to understand the movement of Rhino in the areas where poaching is most prevalent. To date, we have unearthed some fascinating statistics that will be used in conservation of Rhino into the future.
EDUCATION: The Boucher Legacy has rallied the public and achieved high levels of support through media exposure and especially through sporting teams such as South Africa’s national cricket team, The Proteas. Education to reduce demand is also important. A handful of countries drive the demand and education to those markets could prove vital in reducing/eliminating that demand.
