Sergeant Nkateko Letti Mzimba of South Africa’s Black Mamba Unit has won the Best Field Ranger Award at the African Conservation Awards.

These awards shed light on the relentless efforts of these conservation heroes and remind us that some people have dedicated their lives to protecting our natural world.
