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.

Frankfurt Zoological Society - Nsumbu National Park covers the conservation area which is Nsumbu National Park and Tondwa Game Management Area, a vast area with unique landscapes. The rangers, in particular the community scouts, form the backbone of the protected area management in Nsumbu. They are responsible for making sure that this area is well protected by enforcing the law in their daily duties of patrols.

The WRC has supported the rangers by improving their welfare at home and work. It improved water sanitation in the ranger camp in Nsumbu to provide running water to rangers and their families, a first for many of them; provided field equipment including first aid medical supplies, satellite and radio communication devices and navigation aids; extended support towards establishing an aerial wing in Nsumbu to support ground patrols from the air. Participation also ensured rangers realise they are part of a larger global family of rangers that live and work in similar conditions, raising morale, excitement, and pride.

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