Synopsis: 

Ruben used to hunt/poach in the forest areas of Udzungwa, Tanzania in order to provide his family with food. But as the Udzungwa National Park was introduced, Ruben realized he could not continue down this path. Instead he began to use his skills to help conservation biologists working in the park and today Ruben works as an assistant researcher in the park. His large knowledge of the jungle led a group of scientists to collect new data on the poorly described Mountain dwarf galago and more importantly to the discovery of a completely new species of mammals – the Grey Faced Sengi (Rhynchocyon udzungwensis).
