DWR has a joint venture with the South African government, which entails that all staff members of African origin become shareholders, owning shares in the farm. The aim is to be profitable so that staff benefit from the sustainable utilisation of all resources, breeding, tourism, hunting and other small projects.
Apart from our permanent staff, we currently employ an additional group of conservation students, hosting them during their practical year before graduation. This is an important support function to ensure we help to develop conservationists of the future. We also bring the children of staff and young people from the nearby village to experience the wilderness and to learn about the importance of conservation.
