Instead of trying to escape reality, plunge into the flesh of the world.

A four man anti-poaching team permanently guards a Northern White Rhino on Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. The conservancy is an important not-for-profit wildlife conservancy in the Laikipia District of Kenya and the largest sanctuary for black rhinos in East Africa. It is also the home of four of the remaining eight Northern White Rhino, the world’s most endangered animal. Rhino horn is now worth more than gold on the international market. South Africa alone has lost more than 400 rhino to illegal poaching incidents in 2011. The demand for Rhino horn is fueled by a wealthy Asian middle and upper class and used overwhelmingly as medication.
