China’s greatest sporting hero, on board.

Ex-basketball superstar Yao Ming, who stands at 7 ft 6 in, is one of China’s greatest sporting heroes. Using his celebrity status, Yao is a serious advocator for wildlife conservation worldwide. Over the last two years Yao has actively campaigned with WildAid, against the devastating poaching of our Rhino and Elephants, in the knowledge that China is the world’s largest market for rhino horn and ivory.

We were very honoured to have Yao Ming on board our caravan once again. Photo: chief pilot Kyle Lucas (left) and Operations Manager Liz Wangare (right).
