The wildlife we protect are not only the iconic keystone species you always hear about, its the others you don't hear about.
This is called the Helmeted Guinea Fowl, a very common specie of fowl found throughout the African Savannah. They can fly but prefer to walk on the ground where they forage for food, walking around 10km a day.
Sadly these fowls get heavily targeted with small wire snares. which we often remove. We call them the gateway snare. Teenagers usually start by setting these types of snares before becoming full blown entrenched into the wildlife and bushmeat trade.
Education is key in our communities, teaching the importance of protecting all biodiversity.
Managed to capture these friendly fellows near our ranger barracks.
