Chengeta Wildlife

Chengeta Wildlife’s work is based on a comprehensive doctrine specifically developed to tackle poaching from every angle and at every step of the process through an intelligence-driven approach to anti-poaching: We equip rangers with the proactive and reactive investigations, apprehension and tracking-pursuit skills they need to anticipate, locate and apprehend poachers.

Meet Rory Young and Chengeta Wildlfe, helping the communities whose history and future is entwined in living with the Desert elephants of Mali, as they make their 3000 mile circular trek around Timbuktu that has existed in an exquisite dance of survival for centuries. The speeded up human world and global pressures has dramatically affected the traditional cultures who live alongside these elephants and these corridors have become a locus for transnational crime, ethnic wars, and political agendas and extremism from all sides in extreme conditions. The evolution of the world has changed, and conservation models must also adapt and evolve, and our worldview evolve, adapt and take action.
