D.A.R.T. was formed in 1999 in Dete by Paul de Montille − a Zimbabwean and a Professional Wildlife Guide − to alleviate the suffering of animals caught in wire snares set by poachers.
D.A.R.T. is a registered wildlife Trust based in Hwange National Park that not only darts (immobilizes) and treats snared and injured wildlife, but for many years has also conducted snare patrols to search for and remove these horrific devices from the bush before they can do any harm.
Over time D.A.R.T. expanded its operations to provide assistance and valuable logistical support including vehicles, fuel and equipment to Researchers & National Park Rangers in the field.
