Our 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 21st September 2024, the campaign raises vital funds for Africa's biodiversity guardians.


Rangers that form the Tashinga Initiative - DAPU - Dande AntiPoaching Unit based in Dande Safari Area (523 sq. km) and its adjacent Mbire concessions, form part of the patrol effort across the unique landscape that makes up the Zambezi Valley’s 12,820 sq km of wildlife protected areas.


Rangers protect territorial integrity, undertake biological monitoring, conservation management, community relations and manage equipment, resources and tourism. Rangers patrol in rugged and remote conditions, along the Mozambican and Zambian international borders.


WRC Grants have significantly supported ZimParks Rangers. 


For WRC 2024, support to DAPU Rangers could be far-reaching: to provide monthly, all-important patrol food hampers, so that Rangers are operationalised with appropriate and essential patrol kit, plus support for the vehicle patrols which need fuel each month. Rangers’ morale is significantly strengthened through the provision of life insurance cover.
