My name is Anthong Ochieng Okello
Tsavo East National Park park ranger, Anthony Ochieng Okello. Born in Nakuru, Kenya, Anthony has worked in wildlife conservation as a field operations ranger since 2014. "To work as a ranger has not always been a job. Neither a skillset nor a stepping stone to something else. It is a call and an honor which we earn through agility , alertness, stamina and sacrifice as we spend our times and lives in the wilderness. We have not inherited the earth from our father and are hence entitled house it according to our wishes. We have, rather, borrowed it from our children."
