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 IMPACT Madagascar - Mahajeby & Madiromirafy Conservation Areas are located in Bongolava & Betsiboka, in central- western Madagascar. The 2 sites are home to dry deciduous and gallery forests & important wetlands and rivers. These ecosystems host a variety of endemic and threatened taxa, which the local community conservation associations work hard to protect. Rangers patrol the habitats, record occurrences of threats & wildlife encounters, reporting the data to the communities and the management team.

The WRC has allowed for continued support within communities that would otherwise have been devastated due to the financial impacts of the pandemic. Support in 2024 will help continue to expand this vital environmental protection offered by the rangers. Through our participation in the WRC we can also further raise awareness about the important role that rangers play in biodiversity conservation and rally support for their hard work and bravery.

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