A Norfolk film-maker is set to donate £4000 worth of equipment to Kenyan rangers to support wildlife under threat from poachers.
Chris Taylor, a photographer from Sheringham, started his 'Power the Rangers' appeal in March after he visited the area on a job.
He spent a fortnight filming and photographing the work of local rangers charged with protecting the area's wildlife with the support of the community-led Enonkishu Conservancy.
Mr Taylor said: "Through the fundraiser we raised enough money to not only purchase essential equipment such as a rangefinder, torches, GPS units, compasses, etc for the rangers but also enough to buy the materials to set them up a whole new camp.
"I collected a box full of binoculars and telescopes from Tim Strivens, director at Cley Spy, Glandford, for the appeal."
