It was just before sunset, around 6pm on 27th January 2014, that Charles Kinyua heard two gunshots. The shots were coming from the direction of Rumuruti Forest, just like the week before. Then, the patrols spent several days searching the forest but fortunately found no elephant carcasses. As one of Space for Giants’ field officers, Charles’s job is to report any potential poaching incidents to the authorities. He did so without delay.
