Game Ranger training course - Radio use and orientation
On Monday, 25 June 2018, a training course for Game Rangers from the Erongo Mountain Rhino Sanctuary Trust was conducted on Otjompaue. In total 11 employees from the farms Ameib, Eileen (Remaining Extent of Farm Eileen), Hooggenoeg and Otjompaue partook. The training was presented by Otmar, and supported by Hagen.
The course emphasised on the correct use of radio devices as well as orientation in terrain. The proper structure of radio messages was practiced, as well as the judging of distances, constructing a sketch of the respective operational areas of the rangers, and orientation according to the position of the sun. The practical application of the learned theory was an important part of the training. The enthusiastic participation of all involved, and the subsequent positive feedback, show the necessity of such training to strengthen the self-confidence and enhance the operational capability of the game rangers!
The full-day training was concluded with handing out of uniforms and other equipment to the game rangers. Lunch and drinks, as well equipment necessary for the course was provided by Hubert in trusted fashion. Thanks again for this once again! This training day should not be a one-time occurrence, but will be continued with further training, like for example First Aid and Self Defence. Last but not least, the newly learned skills now have to be practiced and improved.

The grey ghost of the mountain - Conservation through hunting in the EMRST (Video)

A video that was filmed in the Erongo Mountains with the support of hunter Henrik Lott and filmmaker Sebastian Steinbrink-Minami to show-case the work of conservation through hunting in the Erongo Mountain Rhino Sanctuary Trust and through the Erongo Verzeichnis. Enjoy!

This Video won the first prize in the “International Hunting- and Naturefilm Competition” at the 2018 Dortmund Jagd&Hund Hunting Show - we consider this a great achievement and further a recognition that the Erongo Mountain Rhino Sanctuary Trust and the Erongo Verzeichnis is on the right track.

Unfortunately the video is only available in German at the moment.
