Guardians of the Night

The mythical "9-1 Team" of Northern Kenya is an elite peacekeeping, anti-poaching unit made up of members of several tribes including Samburu, Borana and Rendille. They are specially trained men whose job is to protect elephants and rhinos in the vast area of the Northern Rangelands Trust, and to use peaceful negotiations to diffuse any incidences of tribal conflict. They are the only group who work day and night to provide safety for animals and peace among the many peoples of Northern Kenya.
