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 Conservation and Wildlife Fund's project area is on the eastern edge of Hwange National Park and in the state-owned forests and privately-owned Gwayi Farms which border it. The wild animals and their habitat are under threat by unsustainable hunting practices and illegal logging. Our focus is on law enforcement and working with the local communities to help both wildlife and people to thrive.

The CWF Rangers operate out of base camps, usually within the forests, from where they patrol. On their patrols the scouts collect snares, inform people whose livestock are found within the protected areas that they are trespassing and send them out; and look for signs of poaching of animals and timber.

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