PLATFONTE, South Africa

Dressed in crisp olive uniforms and shiny black boots, members of the squad of 40 South African Bushmen take up formation with military precision, the last hope of a vanishing people in Platfonte in the Northern Cape, a Bushman community about 15 km (9 miles) outside the former diamond centre of Kimberley and the new headquarters of Sanda Security, in this picture taken April 5, 2006. Cheers greeted this week's first class trained by Sanda Security, a new South African company that aims to preserve the Bushmen's ancient way of life by harnessing their legendary skills as wildlife trackers to provide security and stop stock theft at farms. The company is a novel attempt to forge a future for southern Africa's Bushmen, or San people, among the world's last true hunter-gatherers pushed to the brink of extinction by the relentless encroachment of the modern world. Now believed to number fewer than 85,000 in Kalahari desert areas of Botswana, Namibia, South Africa and Angola, the Bushmen have been hunted and persecuted for hundreds of years as their ancestral land has been swallowed by miners and ranchers.
