When Damien Mander completed his service as a Special Operations diver and sniper, he looked for another chapter in his life, a way to make his life purposeful.
That search ended with a plan to help protect a part of the planet that he saw being destroyed by greed—poachers, looking to cash in by slaughtering the most endangered animals on earth--from rhinos to tigers.
To support Damien's efforts to stop wildlife poaching, go to the International Anti-Poaching Organization website: https://www.iapf.org/
The show begins with THE FAST 15 which is supplemented by a conversation Michael Shure and Mark have about guns, the NRA and America.
