Uniting to Support Africa’s Rangers

Covid-19 has brought tourism revenues across Africa to a halt, leaving a huge deficit in conservation funding. Wildlife Rangers are now uniting around the Wildlife Ranger Challenge, a race with one goal: to raise money to support thousands of rangers and protect iconic African wildlife such as elephants, pangolins, rhinos, and lions.

Now is the time to go the extra mile—it’s time to race to support Wildlife Rangers.
