Today is World Rhino Day.

I was lucky last year to spend some time at Malilangwe in Zimbabwe, who have an incredible story of conservation and community involvement. I was there with the SAVE African Rhino Foundation who support a number of projects in Zimbabwe.
 
Above is a video from a morning I spent training with some men taking part in a ranger selection course. These are the heroes of rhino conservation - spending their days and nights patrolling and protecting these amazing animals.

I had the privilege of tracking rhino on foot at Savé Valley Conservancy and Malilangwe. Rhino are incredibly powerful but also very vulnerable due to their poor eyesight. This is a photo I took on foot - we were down-wind of this mother and calf White Rhino and were able to get within 25 metres or so as they kept walking towards us, before we moved back so we didn't disturb them.
