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.

The Bongo Surveillance Project rangers team monitors the key habitats of the Bongo. In the areas - Mau Complex (2nd largest group in Maasai Mau Forest) and in Aberdares (Conservation area / National park), Eburru and Mt Kenya (Ragati). The team are the only rangers with the experience to consistently monitor these Bongo zones. They monitor the Bongo, the forest and other wildlife using new technologies such as GPS, Camera traps and hand camera photographs. They are a critical source of data for the KWS Bongo Task Force. The BSP rangers are an integral link to the communities. The team have the necessary credentials, experience and respect from the authorities, our partners and the communities.

WRC support helps the BSP Rangers continue with their surveillance work, along with paying their salaries, rations and purchases of field gear (uniforms, trap cameras, batteries, rain coats, GPS gadgets, transport and tents). The funds will also facilitate meetings with rangers for communities and schools.
