Mites, please post your messages of encouragement and support for the rangers who are fighting so hard to protect our rhino here. We will ask Lesego to see the messages are sent onto them all.

I would like to thank all the rangers for their commitment in protecting our Rhino. Working 24/7 and on weekends and public holidays, and putting life and limb on the line for this cause

A BIG THANK YOU to you all

A mere thank you doesn't seem right. You all deserve a medal at least! When we all sleep warm and peacefully, you are there out in the bush, maybe feeling a bit cold and lonely. Only a few mates with you to keep you company. To protect and to serve, dedication putting yourselves at risk. Honors don't come easy, but you earn it all and much more. Hats off and a salute for our brave rangers! Our prayers are with you each day and night...

Thank you so very much, rangers, soldiers, specialists and support crews! You are the thin green line, and your professionalism and sacrifices are so greatly appreciated and admired from around the world! Thank you from Arizona, USA.

Well done for a stirling job under trying circumstances (to put it mildly). You have magical moments.......but all too often so much frustration and discomfort.

Without your efforts things would be so much worse and the battle long lost.......we salute and support you every step of the way.

How does one start to thank those who put the lives of the ones with no defences before their own.
Guys you are doing a fantastic job under very trying circumstances, keep up the great work and the war will be won in the end.
God bless you all.

A mere Thank you seems so trivial to convey our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one who is fighting this massive poaching task at hand. Working under extremely difficult and stressful circumstances, little sleep, away from home, family and loved ones, for long stretches at a time...24/7 on call. :clap:
You are all doing a sterling job which does not go unnoticed ..it is appreciated no end. :thumbs_up:
Thoughts and prayers daily with you all. :pray:
You all make us all extremely proud :thumbs_up: ...I applaud you all. :clap: :clap:

THANK YOU to everyone involved in saving these magnificent species. At times it must be a thankless task. Every creature saved makes our planet a richer place. We salute you.

To all the rangers who are fighting to save the lives of our rhino and other animals, I would love to stand beside you and help, but I'm sure I would just get in the way.
Be assured that there are thousands here and around the world who stand next to you in spirit in this battle. We are proud of you and salute you!
