Africa’s Wildlife Rangers / Scouts put their lives on the line everyday 24/7, to patrol and protect valuable wildlife, habitat and biodiversity.
Many Wildlife Rangers have lost their lives in Africa. They and their families have paid the ultimate price to patrol and protect endangered wildlife. World wide over 1000 Wildlife Rangers have lost their lives in the line of duty.
The nature of wildlife crime has changed. Gunmen and flatbed trucks have been replaced by helicopters and potent automatic weapons. The animals in their sights have little chance in this gory pursuit for illicit profits. Behind the gun teams are sophisticated supply chains using modern technology, as well as bribes and corruption, to deliver animal parts to every corner of the earth.
Courageous, but underpaid park rangers are often outmanned, outgunned and outwitted in a deadly game of hide-and-seek with poachers.
Rangers are real hero’s and with your support we can help protect the protectors.
This unprecedented collaboration of seven of the most influential field-based organisations and the Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will bring together some of the world’s largest environmental bodies and harness the resources and expertise of global leaders in business, communications, technology and the creative industries to tackle this universal challenge.
Join us on a safari of a lifetime and help support our Rangers who are out manned and out gunned by criminal gangs. Take a look at these two videos for some inspiration:
