A ranger strokes a young hand reared Rhino called Hope which has been orphaned by poachers at the Lewa wildlife conservancy. The Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, a non profit organisation, was created by Ian Craig out of his parent's cattle ranch in the 1980s. Situated near the town of Meru, north of Mount Kenya, it covers 62,000 acres and is home to over 10 % of Kenya's black rhino population and over 14% of the country's white rhinos. In recent years, the conservancy has faced increased incursions from poachers and now employs a team of 30 armed rangers and another 44 scouts who patrol 24 hours a day and call in armed support if they encounter poachers.
