Learner Researcher Collin O’Halloran arrived to Cape Town South Africa on May 23rd, 2017 to launch into his justice and public safety practicum. Through VA Corp Service, the South African National Parks is hosting Collin on his 200-hour practicum assignment required to complete his studies at Columbia College. Collin has been fortunate enough to secure a practicum placement with SANParks Dog Unit. While the handlers and their dogs are often the first respondents to incidences of suspected poaching of rhino horn, their duties also include safety and security of parks users, searching parks areas, and the wellbeing of animals and persons.
