PROTECT AND DEFEND - Being a park ranger in Ethiopia's Mago National Park is serious business. The men and women who take on this work risk their lives to defend the land and animals, like elephants and giraffes, from poachers.

A very strong and intense portrait. Great idea to frame this image within the inside of the vehicle, Yan. After learning about many park rangers who risk their lives for that of wildlife’s and to end poaching I’m amazed by these men and women. Love the expression you captured here as his face tells part of his story and his personality.
