On one of our drives, Sylvester and I came across these two teenagers. We had them all to ourselves in the quiet as they grazed. I kept expecting to be inundated with other sightseers but no one found us. We just sat there with them for about 40 minutes. It was incredibly peaceful but it also made me sad to think that if we don’t do something soon, people won’t have the opportunity for very much longer. And that would be a shame.
As we drove back, we ran into the rangers that are tasked with staying in the park overnight and keeping watch over the rhinos and protecting them from poachers. It is an incredibly dangerous job, and they don’t make nearly enough. But the people who do it think it’s important. And I’m glad they do.
