Center for Rhino Protection:

The Silent Heroes Foundation supports the creation of a large-scale, biologically viable, comprehensive high-security protection zone for species at risk of extinction due to poaching.  This ‘sanctuary’ will ensure that species can continue reproducing successfully, engaging in normal free-ranging behaviors, forage normally, and with enough habitat to allow for an environment free of stresses on the population that might otherwise result from human intervention or influence.  Although the concept originated as a result of the ongoing crisis with rhino poaching, it will allow for the protection of other species at risk, such as pangolin, wild dog, and cheetah....

Veterinary Student Externships

ShareSilent Heroes welcomes eight veterinary student externs to our projects in Africa for 2012! Each student will spend several weeks experiencing life as a veterinarian/conservationist in-training at one of our 11 projects in Africa, where students will become immersed in caring for animals, participating in research to benefit the project, and learning the challenges unique to international veterinary medicine in a developing country.

Several students received scholarships for their participation in the extern program, and many students will conduct valuable research to benefit the projects, as well as to contribute to the pool of greater scientific knowledge related to wildlife conservation and One Health medicine in Africa. Silent Heroes will highlight the work of each student in E-news bites to come, and will be sharing their personal experiences through blogs and pictures that we will make available later this summer. Follow along with our externs on their adventures in Africa, and be a part of the excitement as they care for orphan elephants, immobilize rhinos, bleed buffalos, vaccinate village dogs, educate villagers about humane care of donkeys, and protect the endangered mountain gorillas!

Silent Heroes accepts applications to our veterinary student externship program on a year-round basis, and we offer placement at nine of our 11 veterinary and wildlife projects in Africa. For more information please contact Dr. Adams at: adams@thesilentheroes.org.
