Don, and the rest of the staff involved in the counter-poaching effort, it is a priviledge to know you. Well done!

I have a tiny little granddaughter, and I have had frightening thoughts that she might never see a rhino in the wild when she is grown. But then I think of the work you and your teams are doing Don, and I know that thanks to your brave efforts, my little granddie will see that rhino. :clap: :clap:

Don is a legend. I met him back in Feb while doing HR duty during the strike. He was riding around on his scrambler looking foe a suspicious vehicle. I never saw it and had to leave Kruger later that day. Hope it was a false alarm!
