Hi Andrew,

The work that you do is very much appreciated by nature lovers around the world, myself included.

You and your colleagues are doing a great job for good against evil.

It is very sad to hear that you have been injured like this in the line of duty, and we pray for your complete, soon recovery.

God bless you.

I know Andrew as a kind hearted and dedicated conservationist with a passion for our parks. He was shot while protecting not only our rhinos, but the very future of our natural heritage.

Get well Andrew and I pray that you will be back in the Kruger to continue your work.

A special word of encouragement to his wife and children. We are with you in our prayers.

I also want to encourage all our rangers and their families. Be assured of our full support.
