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.

WRC supports the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund - Nkuba Conservation Area Program in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Our DRC trackers come from the communities in the Nkuba Conservation Area - 2400 km2 of pristine forest - located between two National Parks. This forest receives no formal protection by the government; instead, proprietary and resource use of this forest is in the hands of indigenous landowners who have organised themselves into Community Forest Concessions. It is home to critically endangered Grauer’s gorillas and at least 9 other threatened species. 

WRC has provided vital support toward salaries and supplies for our trackers, which we have tripled in the past 3 years.

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