The CEO and Head of Security of the Welgevonden Game Reserve discuss the benefits of a proactive approach in combatting poachers
Show Notes

Welgevonden is a stunning game reserve a few hours north of Johannesburg, and home to a wide variety of African wildlife. It's also what could be described as a 'test site' for an exciting new technology which offers hope to the problem of poaching and wildlife crime.

In this episode, CEO Shaun McCartney and Head of Security Kassie Knoetze discuss the security challenges Welgevonden faces, the importance of adopting a proactive mentality, and the role experimental technology plays in keeping the poachers at bay.
