Former England cricket captain Kevin Pietersen is on a mission to raise awareness about wildlife and threats to it in the Kaziranga National Park in Assam.
For this reason, he is coming up with a documentary, the shooting for which he began in March.

Named Save This Rhino, the documentary will premier on September 22 and the trailer of the same was shared by KP.

Since the trailer launch of this National Geographic show, a lot of appreciation has been pouring in for KP and his efforts to talk about an important but often sidelined issue.
Looking forward to it @KP24— Shantanu N Sharma (@shantanunandan2) September 20, 2020
...also my sincere gratitude to you & @NatGeoIndia for choosing this topic of “Save Rhino” & also highlighting Kaziranga, Assam.
For me and most Assamese, rhinos in Kaziranga are part of the family. We grew up with them.
Best wishes. https://t.co/Sa6iXChkOo
One has got to admire KP's love for Rhinos. And India. 🙏🏽 https://t.co/G5Hg1SqeFJ— Journal Entry (@abhility) September 20, 2020
