Uniting To Support Africa’s Rangers

Wildlife Ranger teams are uniting around the 2021 Wildlife Ranger Challenge, a running race with one goal: to raise money to support the men and women across Africa’s protected areas who continue to see drastic cuts in resources and an increase in poaching due to the devastating economic impact of Covid-19.

Support thousands of rangers and protect iconic African wildlife such as elephants, pangolins, rhinos, and lions by joining the challenge today, every gift made will be doubled by the Scheinberg Relief Fund.
