Photo by @petekmuller. Members of the Mara Elephant Project and Mara Conservency work to place a tracking device on the ear of a female rhino in Kenya's Maasai Mara National Park. This rhino has been ranging farther afield in recent months, making her more vulnerable to poachers. Conservationists wanted to implant the device in order to gain a better sense of her whereabouts. The rhino was darted with a sedative ahead of the process. Rangers from the Mara Conservency work day and night to deter poaching threats to wildlife in the park. Follow @petekmuller as I chronicle their efforts. #wildlife #conservation #rhino #MaasaiMara #Kenya #nature #
