In 2012, the Foundation together with the South African National Parks (SANParks) launched a new aerial surveillance solution to save South Africa’s rhinos. The reconnaissance aircraft, The Seeker Seabird, was donated to SANParks by the Foundation.

The Ichikowitz Family Foundation remains committed to using its financial and human resources in its fight against poaching and protecting Africa’s vanishing wildlife..



To help combat poaching, the foundation is financing a pilot project in the Madikwe Game Reserve, along South Africa's northern border with Botswana,

to bring military-style training to the rangers. The program puts the rangers through an intensive six-week training program, overseen by former Special Task soldiers from around the world. The project will expanded into other areas where rhino poaching has reached a crisis point.

Rangers learn combat training, target shooting, building camouflage netting to ambush the poachers and are introduced with new equipment to combat poaching.
