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.

Protecting a conservation area of 4000 hectares with only 15 rangers is a challenging task. Our team at Lion Landscapes - Tumaren Ranch - Karisia Walking Safaris helps with mitigating community conflict, wildlife conflict and protecting wildlife and its habitat. It is crucial to recognize the importance of conservation and provide the necessary resources to protect our natural heritage for future generations.

WRC has helped rangers with wildlife education, fitness, and overall knowledge to date. Rangers play a critical role in protecting our natural heritage, and it is essential that they are equipped with the necessary skills and equipment to carry out their duties effectively.

It is essential to recognize the efforts of WRC which has provided training and support to rangers. Such initiatives can go a long way in ensuring the success of conservation efforts. By equipping rangers with the necessary equipment, skills and knowledge, we can protect our natural heritage and ensure that future generations can enjoy it.

Give today and the Scheinberg Relief Fund will match every dollar donated, amplifying your impact. Join us in speaking up #ForWildlifeRangers

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.
