Negry is a Rhino Ambassdor (RA) in the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere Region (K2C). She lives in Newington, a village close to Kruger National Park and the network of private game reserves that support “Big 5” tourism. It is her job, along with RAs in other villages of the region, to speak on behalf of an animal species facing extinction driven by human greed. Her compassion for two young rhino calves orphaned by poachers is palpable when she recounts the loss of her own mother at a very young age. Her story, which is intertwined with the perspectives and energetic innovations of community elder, Killion Mabunda, is communicated in a participatory film project with a group of young Rhino Ambassadors and Environmental Monitors working with K2C.
