We met Martin at a community conservancy in Northern Namibia.
When he was younger, he and his family were (controversially) relocated to make way for the conservancy. Today, it is part of a network of community-owned conservation areas where local people control at least some of the revenue derived from tourism and trophy hunting.
Almost 20 years later, Martin is an experienced local game ranger; patrolling the area on his tiny bicycle. Martin's wide smile, gentle disposition, and big hands, made him a favourite of ours. Here is his story.
