Tanzania park and game reserve rangers, acting as poachers, cook meat from a game reserve animal as part of demonstration August 24, 2016, at Rungwa Game Reserve, Tanzania. The scenario was based around rangers locating a camp of poachers who illegally killed an elephant to harvest its ivory. Rangers recently trained with members of the 403rd Civil Affairs Battalion, a component of Combined Joint Task Force - Horn of Africa, and North Carolina Army National Guard to learn techniques to track and capture poachers.
