Walker largely grew up at Lapalala Wilderness where his parents assisted the late Dale Parker in the establishment of the reserve which has become an important rhino sanctuary. Lapalala was the first private reserve in South Africa to introduce the black rhino. Walker joined the permanent staff of the reserve in 1996 and is today the general manager of the 36 000-ha sanctuary. He has worked closely with both species of rhino over the past 16 years in all areas of management, monitoring, field operations, capture and care. [1]
