Kruger National Park, South Africa

For those of us who work, travel, and/or volunteer in our national parks there can be a tendency to think of our park system as a unique phenomenon.  It is helpful to be reminded that there are others working globally to protect and interpret the world’s natural and historic treasures.  These individuals are often toiling under the most extraordinary political, economic, and social circumstances.  This is one of their stories.
