At dusk in southern Angola, former civil war soldier Elias Kawina leads a drill parade for 30 rangers who fight armed poachers in the country’s vast, little-explored interior.

Kawina, aged 38, rose to the rank of lieutenant in government forces during the bloody, 27-year conflict that finally ended in 2002.

Now he battles illegal hunting that threatens the fragile recovery of Angola’s wildlife, which was decimated during the war but is today seen a potential tourism draw.
