On World Ranger Day we shared an incredibly moving story about Sergeant Mutinda Ndivo who turned from poacher to protector. Since 2003, instead of living a life of crime, Mutinda has been protecting and saving wildlife, while also being an inspiration to his community. Countless animals are alive today because of his direct contributions at Big Life, including leading Big Life’s Tracker Dog Unit.
Sergeant Mutinda was recently selected as a Paradise African Ranger Award winner; one of 50 Rangers from 17 different countries who were honored. An international panel of judges reviewed the entries based on their dedication, contribution, threats, and challenges overcome, as well as leadership and inspiration.
Congratulations, Mutinda and thank you for your service!
