My story

Rangers are Africa’s unsung heroes. They hold diverse roles as conservationists, teachers, community support workers, leaders and much more.

The Wildlife Ranger Challenge, organised by Tusk, is a celebration of solidarity, connection and camaraderie for the ranger profession. Culminating on 16th September 2023, the campaign raises vital funds for Africa's biodiversity guardians.

Lion Landscapes - Suyian Ranch is a spectacular and critical unfenced wildlife habitat extending to 44,000 acres in Laikipia County, Kenya. Suyian has been managed for decades as a sanctuary for wildlife as well as providing critical support for local communities. Suyian forms part of a critical wildlife movement corridor between northern Kenya and Laikipia/Mount Kenya (a world heritage site) allowing elephants and other species to move with the rains. We remain very grateful to our team of rangers who work tirelessly day and night to keep our wildlife safe.

Wildlife rangers operate on the very frontline of conservation across Africa, routinely making personal sacrifices to put their lives on the line to protect the continent’s magnificent wildlife and habitats. Yet they are so much more than just law enforcement officers: rangers are teachers, community support workers, mediators, researchers and so much more. Unfortunately, resources are not keeping pace with the scale of the challenges they are trying to tackle. For the fourth year running, the Wildlife Ranger Challenge sets out to redress this, by raising critical funding to cover operating costs, including salaries and equipment, for over 10,000 rangers. This will help them protect threatened wildlife and some of the continent's most vulnerable areas, while also protecting communities and securing coexistence with wildlife, as well as providing for their own families.
