The Shooting Show – on rhino poaching patrol in South Africa

In a behind-the-scenes Shooting Show special, we bring you never-before-seen footage that depicts the devastation wrought on South Africa’s rhino population by the poaching menace.

We join ex-special forces operator Les Brett on a farm with the highest density of rhino on the continent. He and a few good men have started a unique initiative: the Threatened Wildlife Protection Academy, which takes volunteers and trains them up to allow them to join a fully fledged rhino protection unit.

Byron mans the camera as we watch their training in action and accompany them on rhino patrol – with tense and dangerous results. And we get an insight into the precarious future of one of Africa’s most loved big game species, and the horrific threats it faces.
