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 Communities for Red Colobus (C4RC) project employs seven rangers who are supported by Jankoba Jabbi, the project manager. The ranger team work in the Central River Region of The Gambia and are tasked with securing the largest known population of endangered Temminck’s red colobus monkeys.

C4RC was developed in 2020 with a vision to build local capacity for primate conservation and to develop community livelihood initiatives to reduce the dependency on forest clearance for charcoal production. The rangers undertake a range of activities including research, education and awareness campaigns, primate surveys, forest patrols and ecotourism.

Support for the C4RC rangers through WRC has enabled them to transform the lives of local people. Women's groups empower some of the most marginalised members of the local community, wildlife clubs take children out of the classroom and immerse them in the forest and a ranger training programme is mentoring young men and women as the next generation of C4RC rangers. 


Give today and the Scheinberg Relief Fund will match every dollar donated, amplifying your impact. Join us in speaking up #ForWildlifeRangers
