04 Orphaned Rhino
Ami Vitale, USA Second Place, Nature, Singles
A group of Samburu warriors encounter a rhino for the first time. Most people in Kenya never get to see the wildlife that exists in their own backyard. Much attention has been focused on the plight of wildlife and the conflict between poachers and rangers, but little has been said about the indigenous communities on the front lines of the poaching wars, who hold the key to saving Africa’s great animals.
