"The Prince will then travel to Kruger National Park, where he will draw attention to the anti-poaching efforts being used to protect South Africa's most endangered animals. Prince Harry chose to spend time this summer working with rangers on the front line of conservation in Africa and is keen to highlight their skills and professional training. The Prince will see the operational and intelligence gathering response coordinated at the Mission Joint Operations Centre in Kruger National Park, and visit the Southern African Wildlife College to see rangers in training at all levels of professional development."

How wonderful. Creating awareness is so important.

As with the visit by President Zuma ... it can only create more awareness, and as a senior SANParks official said to me, boost ranger moral, which is really needed and so important.
