An excellent documentary about a former Royal Marine Special Boat Service colonel, Conrad Thorpe, now training park rangers in the Congo for an elite anti-poaching unit. Yes, a mercenary for conservation. A noble cause, a good FID primer, too. And as dangerous an AO as any bush war.

Isn't this the stuff Sawman has been involved in?

Not a high-paying gig, apparently. Not anywhere near the scale of OIF/OEF during the height of contractor hiring. But something to which a man could commit himself and feel good about...if he's willing to put up with privations and stingy funding.

For many it's not about the money, it's about getting back into the game.

Too many clowns are involved in this industry now. Though there is now a lot of publicity that has been sorely needed for many years.
