Africa, famous for its forests and wild life, many of them of rare species category, is plagued by illegal poaching.
It is condemned in unequivocal terms for two reasons: one, because, the hunters kill the animals and cause immense damage to the ecological system; and, two, because the animal lovers, though pained, are powerless to prevent it. But, for Kinessa Johnson, a badass US Army veteran with experience as a weapons instructor and mechanic, the experience is different. Now she works for VETPAW (Veterans Empowered To Protect African Wildlife), imparting professional training to the African rangers in marksmanship, hiding, intelligence and surveillance techniques to help capture illegal poachers. It is hoped her services would help eradicate the menace.
