Tusk Conservation Awards 2017
The winners were announced and we are estatic to see that the Tusk Wildife Ranger Award went to Solomon Chidunuka. A past Area Manager of Lower Zambezi and with a son training in our guiding team we feel a particular burst of pride for a ‘family member’.
“As a junior ranger in Zambia in 1999, Solomon Chidunuka dressed in old clothes, took a bus to a notorious poachers’ lair, and won their confidence by pretending to be an ivory buyer. He then summoned colleagues who arrested 25 suspects and put many in prison – and he never looked back. During a career that has seen him become senior wildlife warden in charge of three national parks, he has participated in numerous undercover missions. He has built up intelligence networks that often alert him before poachers have entered a protected area.”
He believes in leading by example.
