International Anti-Poaching Foundation / Zimbabwe
The International Anti-Poaching Foundation, founded by Damien Mander in 2009, advocates the use of military equipment and tactics for the training of anti-poaching rangers and the protection of endangered wildlife. High Target Species such as elephant, rhino, tiger and gorilla are being hunted to extinction. These animals are the most difficult to protect, as poachers go to the most extreme lengths to kill them.
Anti-poaching rangers form the first and last line of defense for nature. Without the right training, equipment, management and support they cannot defend the world’s natural heritage for future generations. The IAPF fulfills this niche responsibility within its areas of operations, whilst working alongside credible partners who specialize in the other vital components of conserving protected area biodiversity.

June 25-30, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Out in the bush not far from the Zambezi river, we created the anti-poaching Panotriptych with Damien Mander, founder of the International Anti-Poaching Foundation, and his team of highly trained anti-poaching rangers. Thanks to their 24/7 patrols at the Stanley and Livingston private game reserve, we were able to witness the beauty of black-rhinos wandering in a safe and protected wilderness. Portraying the work of the IAPF rangers was the goal of our first Panotriptych.
