I have a friend in South Africa who has dedicated his life to the protection of the last remaining wild black rhinos on earth, and he does this on foot. He lives in the bush with his dog, his gun and his team. He protects rhinos for many months at a time over vast expanses of wilderness whilst surviving in the wild. This year so far he has seen more dead rhinos than live ones, over 50 in a month. Personally doing autopsies on 13 & emergency procedures to try and rescue suffocating babies a few days away from birth. Spending 4 months tracking with a pregnant female and getting to know her in all the mystery of such a majestic beast. Sharing special moments and getting excited about the prospects of her coming child and a hope for the continuation of the species. Only to wake up after another restless night to see vultures circling in the distance. He sprints over and finds her butchered corpse. Her face hacked and machete gashes in her flanks as amateur poachers tried to hold her down and sever her spine. Only a few weeks from delivering the baby. They have taken just the horns. Tears and rage in his eyes he butchers through her body to try to find the suffocating foetus. Racing to cut through the dense leather armour of pure muscle a perfect rhino child emerges, but he is too late. It's a cruel country, both to nature and it's people. This shouldn't be my friend job. This shouldn't be a situation that exists. Not in a world where people and life can be respected and treated equally. We can live sustainably as a greater people. The American dream has many, and especially those unjustly oppressed, blinded with a greed for ivory. My friend has witnessed countless horrors - to his friends, the rhinos and the pain of turning over poachers to the corruption of the police who are all in on it. He has no money and works to pay for his own gear and dog food. It's a fucked situation, no romanticism about it. But he's got his boots on the ground.  #thisisafrica #tia
