Njunja ‘George’ James

RHINO Monitoring Officer

George has worked on the Wilderness Trust Botswana Rhino Reintroduction Project as a rhino monitoring officer for the past 10 years.

He is of the Mbukushu tribe, which originated in Namibia but now lives in the Okavango Delta. George has a four-year-old son who is being raised by his mother.

He is passionate about rhinos – and about educating people about them. And is proud of his role in monitoring them and keeping them safe.

The rhino is an amazing animal. Some people think its horn is a medicine. But it’s not. Poachers have to leave our rhinos alone – we don’t want to lose them. At least here they are safe.”
