A desert-based police force in Jordan has for several decades safeguarded a region that’s home to different tribes. Since its founding in the 1920s, Jordan’s Royal Desert Forces has helped maintain stability not only in the desert, but throughout the country as a whole. Natalie Carney was in Wadi Rum in southern Jordan, where she joined the desert police and their camels on patrol.

Tao Yuan spent time with Old Creek’s forest rangers as they carried out their job, one they had never imagined doing but now embrace with pride.
