Careers in Conservation

Hosted by GCC Producer Mbhoni Mzamani, the goal of the series is to inspire young people about the numerous career possibilities available to them in the field of conservation, and also to introduce them to heroes and role models in their communities whose extraordinary career paths are truly inspiring.

“There are so many different careers in conservation. My job has been to share these careers with youngsters in the local communities and hopefully change their perspectives on wildlife and conservation, especially as I am someone they can relate to.” – Host Mbhoni Mzamani

RHINOMAN The Movie

From the Global Conservation Corps and Friendly Human comes, RHINO MAN, a feature-length documentary about the courageous field rangers who risk their lives every day to protect South Africa’s rhinos from being poached to extinction.

In the midst of the battle to save the rhinos, a great ranger trainer, Martin Mthembu, has fallen, leaving a void in the fight. His close friend, Ruben de Kock, continues to honor his legacy by training the next generation of rangers, while Sergeant Anton Mzimba holds the line against poachers out in the bush.

It’s a race to train and inspire the next generation to care for the rhinos and these wild spaces, before poachers wipe out one species after another. A story of deep loss and suffering overcome by love and sacrifice for the greater good.
