We spend so much of our energy trying to find civilizations elsewhere in the universe, without realizing that the intelligent aliens we're looking for are often right under our noses here on Earth. Elias Mugambi is employed as a ranger on Lewa Wildlife Conservancy at the foot of Mount Kenya. He understands that just because we have the power to destroy other living things, does not give us the right. He recognizes the sentience of non-human beings, and protects those who do not have a voice. If there is any hope left for wildlife on Earth, it is because of people like him.
