Why? Garamba's elephant population has been decimated from over 20,000 in the 1990's to just 1,200 today. It is one of the last refuges of the Kordofan giraffe. 13 rangers have been killed on duty in the last 3 years. African Parks is turning it around. These dogs will make a tangible difference to both the wildlife and the rangers.
