The Chinko Project: Fighting to Save Central Africa's Wildlife

This is war. As poachers devastate Africa's wildlife to the brink of extinction, a brave band of men are taking up arms to protect them. They are called the Chinko Project, and this is their story:
The Chinko Project We are a team of local Central African + foreign staff who have made camp in the middle of the Chinko reserve to save wildlife from the militarized rebel poachers. Using an ultra-light aircraft to guide our rangers with air support surveillance, we fight under the threat of armed poachers, the invasive South Sudanese herders, Konys Lords Resistance Army, and Seleka rebel militia. On top of that, we now have to deal with the loss of our main tool, the ULM (Ultra-light airplane). After a hard landing at our home airstrip that crumpled the nose wheel, causing the propeller to strike the ground, we are left to scramble and find a way to restore our operation back to 100% and get back to protecting our rangers and wildlife from these criminals.
