Bubye Valley Conservancy had the pleasure of hosting His Excellency Ambassador Kumar Gupta of Canada and his wife Nadira on a rhino operation implanting tracking devices donated by French company SigFox. Both have become passionate about wildlife since their arrival in Zimbabwe and raise much needed awareness. The Sigfox team also flew out from Paris to install their low power and long range network using solar energy and satellite connectivity to help the Bubye Valley team monitor the rhino more closely.
Everyone got very involved in helping Natasha and Chap Masterson (vet extraordinaire), resulting in tracking devices fitted into the horns of three rhino. Click on the images below to enlarge them.
