As others have said "a mere thank you" does not do justice for the work you all do.
I thank and pray for all you brave souls from the bottom of my heart.
I hope and pray we can all end this unnessesary bloodshed. :k

It certainly is a sad world when people and animals are dying because someone believes a horn can cure disease. Hats off to all those we will never see for all you are doing to save our wildlife from these total idiots. No words can describe how grateful I am that through your efforts, we have a chance at having wild rhino in 20 years time still walking our reserves. My heart felt sad very time I pulled up to one of these wonderful creatures, to know that they could all be gone one day. I salute you all.
Cheers

Thinking of you guys (rangers) all through this super moon period in the park. May the skies be covered with cloud; may you all, and the rhinos, be kept safe.

To all who are directly involved in anti Rhino poaching may I miss quote Winston Churchill
" Never in the history against rhino poaching has so much been owed by so many to so few"

God bless and guide you in all you do to combat this scourge.

There is a certain kind of courage that I admire beyond all else. It is about facing fear with no thought of personal reward.

It is about giving to a greater good, no matter what.

You guys have no idea how many people admire you. You are in my thoughts and I will be lighting a candle for your safety each day.

May the angels protect you and may God reward you.... for always.
