Our Story

Our Lion Extension Officers (LEOs) are gearing up for the Wildlife Ranger Challenge on 21st of September to support our Lion Ranger programme. This is their second year participating, and we're excited to cheer them on! You can help too by fundraising with us or donating to our page to support the Laikipia Lion Rangers in protecting lions and other large carnivores.

Nearly 80% of lions in the Laikipia-Samburu landscape live on private ranches and conservancies, crucial for wildlife breeding and replenishment. The Laikipia Lion Rangers, trained by Lion Landscapes in partnership with The Peregrine Fund, play a vital role in monitoring and protecting these magnificent creatures, preventing livestock attacks, and collaborating with communities to stop poisonings.

In 2023, we trained 108 rangers with support from Tusk and the proceeds from the 2022 Wildlife Ranger Challenge. You can help us train even more by donating today—every dollar you give will be matched by the Scheinberg Relief Fund, doubling your impact.

Rangers are Africa’s unsung heroes—conservationists, educators, community leaders, and more. The Wildlife Ranger Challenge, organised by Tusk, celebrates these biodiversity guardians. By supporting our team, you’re directly contributing to the protection of Kenya’s wildlife and the communities that coexist with them.


Your gift today can make a real difference. Donate now and be a hero for Africa’s lions. #ForWildlifeRangers

Plus, they also play a crucial role in collecting monitoring data, which directly influences conservation efforts. Your gift today can make a real difference.
