Lewa and NRT’s Edward Ndiritu receives ranger award from Prince William for Anti-Poaching excellence

On the 24th November, the head of anti-poaching for Lewa and the Northern Rangelands Trust, Edward Ndiritu, received the inaugural Tusk Wildlife Ranger Award from HRH the Duke of Cambridge at the Tusk Awards in London.
Edward, who leads a large team of rangers charged with covering vast areas of northern Kenya, was chosen as the winner from a list of nominees across Africa. The judges state that he stood out for his vigilant leadership, bravery, and inspiring commitment to the protection of wildlife and communities across the northern Kenya landscape.


The Southern African Wildlife College (SAWC) was privileged to be included in HRH Prince Harry’s visit to South Africa as part of a Royal Tour, which included stops in Lesotho, Cape Town, Durban, the Kruger National Park and Johannesburg. Following his visit to the Kruger National Park, on 2 December 2015 he met with students at the College’s Field Ranger training base and then went on to meet with the graduands of the Wildlife Area Management training programme.
