Ami Vitale. Kamara and Kilifi.

Size

Kilifi was an 18-month-old rhino and his keeper, Kamara was hand-raising along with two other baby rhinos at Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya. Kamara would spend 12 hours every day watching over the vulnerable baby rhinos. Kenya’s black rhinos population had plummeted to near extinction but their numbers are again rising in Kenya due to the efforts by the people and government to protect them.
