An incredible new weapon has joined the battle against poachers: women. They're tough, they're dedicated, and they're fighting poachers in Africa. They are the Black Mamba's; Africa's first female-run anti-poaching unit that are saving Africa's wildlife.
"I am strong. I am a woman. And I bite like a Mamba!"
The Black Mambas are all young women from local communities, and they patrol inside the Greater Kruger national park unarmed. Billed as the first all-female unit of its kind in the world, they are not just challenging poachers, but the status quo.
