Ranger Joe’s latest post from Uganda

Hi again everyone! I’ve had a couple of days of recovery on Mweya, but from the porch of Hippo House and on the walks to Tembo I’ve still enjoyed some wonderful wildlife, including elephants. The rangers kindly took me on a short bush walk as well which was fascinating.

Today I have been at UWA headquarters meeting with the two wardens in charge of law enforcement and community work. It’s been really interesting to hear from them about the conservation work they are doing in Queen Elizabeth National Park. I’ve been very lucky as over the next two weeks I will be working with them, visiting schools and other parks to learn more about the very important work they are doing and seeing what it means to be rangers in Uganda. I’m very excited!
