The fight against Rhino poaching has received a much needed shot in the arm from the Castle Lager Boucher Legacy NPC “Our Rhino in safe hands” programme.
The Non-Profit Company headed by former Proteas and record breaking wicket keeper Mark Boucher, has successfully raised over R1 million to purchase a state of the art DNA analysis machine for the Veterinary Genetics Laboratory of the University of Pretoria in Onderstepoort. The machine is a critical component in helping with the plight of the rhinos through the RhODIS project.
The machine has helped the Veterinary Genetics Laboratory to run 15 384 rhino samples since it’s arrival in the lab.
