"I grew up at the farm and I have seen how wildlife has changed our livelihoods through tourism, it has created employment for us within the conservancy. I enjoy my work as I am part of the team that takes care of our natural resources.
Wildlife numbers decreased and water points dried up, due to the persistent drought over the years. We still need to build our tourism industry and without wildlife, tourism will not be possible.
We should continue taking care of our wildlife after this Coronavirus."
