We have been walking alongside them, we have been on patrol with them, we have looked into their eyes and we have faced the hardship they have to deal with every day.
These brave men and women still get up every morning to protect Africa’s iconic species.
We salute you!

One Ranger helped us filming while he introduced us to the last northern white rhinos.
Stay safe.

We watched rangers getting ready for night patrol. They waved at us before they walked off into the bush. To protect.

This ranger is getting ready for a horse patrol.
To keep the forest and its inhabitants safe.
To monitor wildlife and the elephant corridor.
A job well done.

Many long patrols start, when the night sets in.
The elephants will be protected once more.
An exhausting job, but they will keep going every day.
Rangers, vets and owners dehorning rhino, to keep them safe another day.
We salute you as we know how hard this decision is.

Stay safe!
