As one of the most biologically diverse regions in the world, South Africa is home to a vast array of wildlife. To ensure that these animals are protected and preserved for future generations, it is essential to have accurate data on their populations and distributions – that’s where Capital Air comes in.

For the past 40 years, Capital Air has been an integral part of the conservation industry – assisting private reserves, conservation areas and national parks with their annual game counts and continued conservation efforts.

Game counts are an essential tool used by conservationists to monitor wildlife populations. They provide critical information that helps us to better understand the health and dynamics of animal populations, and to make informed decisions about how best to manage them.

Capital Air plays a critical role in these conservation efforts. Our helicopters provide an invaluable vantage point, allowing us to quickly and efficiently survey large areas of land, often covering several thousand hectares in a single flight. This allows us to assist conservation professionals collect data on
animal numbers, movements, and behaviour patterns that would be impossible to obtain from the ground.
