I'm Edward Ndiritu, the Head of Anti-Poaching at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy (www.lewa.org) in Kenya. Today is #WorldRangerDay, and I decided to do this AMA to share my experience as an Anti-Poaching ranger for close to 2 decades. In 2015, I became the first winner of the Tusk Wildlife Ranger Award. It was an honour not just for me, but for my team because we work very hard. In the past six years, we have not lost any of our rhinos to poaching. We've also never had an elephant killed on our Conservancy. it's certainly not easy, but we are hopeful, passionate and optimist. Please feel free to AMA, though, as you can imagine, there are some questions I might not be able to answer due to the sensitive nature of my job. Looking forward to connecting with you all!
