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.

Conservation Through Public Health covers Bwindi Impenetrable National Park, which spans 32,092 hectares and is known for its exceptional biodiversity, containing more than 400 species of plants, 120 mammal species including elephants, antelopes and several primate species such as baboons, chimpanzees and 459 mountain gorillas. It is one of 10 National Parks managed by Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA).

Park rangers patrol the park to monitor and safeguard wildlife, collect gorilla faecal samples for health monitoring and enforce great ape viewing guidelines for visitors.

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