Uniting to Support Africa’s Rangers

Ranger Teams from 20 African countries are joining forces in the Wildlife Ranger Challenge to support thousands of their colleagues as they brace for an increase in poaching.

Wildlife Rangers see no relief in sight, as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to impact Africa’s communities and wildlife. The pressures on Africa’s protected areas threaten to compromise decades of development and conservation success through the elimination of essential funding for wildlife protection that comes from tourism and through an increase in poaching. The Wildlife Ranger Challenge will bring together more than 150 ranger teams across 20 African countries to participate in a series of mental and physical challenges, culminating in the Wildlife Ranger Challenge 21km half marathon on September 18th2021. The challenge allows rangers to showcase their important work, and provides a platform for their organisations to generate funding. 


This global awareness campaign will use the power of ranger voices, influencers and celebrities to encourage the public to support Africa’s rangers by donating to the Ranger Fund. Become a Challenge sponsor and support thousands of rangers in the field, enabling them to support themselves and their communities and to protect iconic African wildlife such as elephants, pangolins, rhinos, and lions. Your generous contribution will be matched by the Scheinberg Relief Fund, doubling your impact.
