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 22,000km2 North Luangwa Ecosystem (NLE) encompasses the North Luangwa National Park (NLNP) and four Game Management Areas (GMA). The NLE is home to Zambia’s largest and fastest growing elephant population, as well as the only black rhino population. Due to highly effective, adaptive and strategic law enforcement efforts by North Luangwa Conservation Programme, a 36-year partnership between FZS and DNPW, elephant poaching decreased significantly from the major crisis years 2012-2016, with 2018-2021 recording the lowest number of poached elephant carcasses detected across the NLCP operational area since 2008. Additionally, the black rhino population has not been subjected to any poaching since its re-introduction in 2003 and has one of the highest growth rates in Africa.
