Yusuf, a keeper at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya sleeps among three baby rhinos. The calf he rested his head on was orphaned when poachers killed his mother 50 miles away. Much needed attention has been focused on the plight of wildlife and the conflict between heavily armed poachers and increasingly militarized wildlife rangers. But very little has been said about the indigenous communities on the front lines of the poaching wars and the incredible work they do to protect these animals. They hold the key to saving Africaís great animals.
