International Coalition of Rhino Protection (ICORP) is a registered charity organization. ICORP was founded, to stand in the gap for the conservation and protection of wildlife in Southern Africa, particularly rhino, elephant and big cats. Ensuring that the men and women on the front lines risking their lives daily, receive the highest form of support through equipment and gear. Engaging with their families, approaching them in a dignified and meaningful manner. Identifying their needs through continuous and open discussions with their respective community elders.
We are a committed group of people, with members who have been and still are on the front lines, have been in law enforcement, done patrols, laid in ambushes, arrested and convicted poaching syndicates, involved with complex and dangerous investigations and still involved in collecting intel. Our members are highly skilled in dealing with wildlife crimes and ant-poaching crimes, while others are involved with training of our APU on the front line, public relations, education and wildlife research. All are professionals in their own right making a strong and dedicated ICORP team of members, all volunteers, committed to save the wildlife under threat in Southern Africa and looking after our Ranger families and their communities, while giving ex-military and police officers the opportunity to come and assist on the front lines to help protect these iconic species.
