At age 43, Michael Werikhe was known all over the world for his decade-long struggle to highlight the plight of the African Black Rhino and other endangered species. Unfortunately, he met his death when he was beaten by a gang outside his house at Majengo Sega in Mombasa on a bright morning as he walked to catch a bus to work, just like he had done for many years. The accolades he received for walking to create awareness for Rhino conservation were: The Guinness Stout Effort Award (1983), David Sheldrick Memorial Award (1984), Boots Action Award (1985), EAWLS Conservation Award (1986), UNEP Global 500 Award (1989), Goldman Environmental Prize (1990), Eddie Bauer Heroes of Earth (1991) and the San Diego Zoological Society Conservation Medal (1991). Kenya's renowned photojournalist Mohamed Amin, also known as 'Six Camera Mo' was best known as a great frontline photojournalist, but he spent more time documenting his country’s beauty, wildlife, culture, people and leaders than anything else. Mo managed to use his cameras for more than a generation to bring East Africa’s most powerful stories into world view.
