Each year, more than a thousand rhinoceroses are killed in South Africa alone, and their numbers are dwindling all over the world.

Here he explains his own efforts toward protecting these iconic animals, not only leading today's fight against armed poachers, but also working with schoolchildren, communities, and policymakers in the longer term.
