Lion Landscapes - Ol Jogi Conservancy - Wildlife Ranger Challenge 2023
Lion Landscapes is taking on the Wildlife Ranger Challenge to raise awareness of the vital role our 103 rangers play in protecting Kenya's Ol Jogi Conservancy, and supporting an estimated 1500 livelihoods.
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 16th September 2023, the campaign raises vital funds for Africa's biodiversity guardians.
Lion Landscapes - Ol Jogi Conservancy is situated in Laikipia County, Kenya.
It hosts 22 species of ungulates, 5 species of large carnivores, a multitude of small carnivores, 3 species of primates, and up to 400 avian species. We have the single largest population of the critically endangered Grevy’s Zebra with approximately 16% of the world’s remaining population living on the property.
Ol Jogi's rangers provide protection to a much-needed habitat and breeding ground for many other critically endangered species. In addition to protecting East Africa's third largest rhino population on a private conservancy; our teams provide security to surrounding communities.

Wildlife rangers operate on the very frontline of conservation across Africa, routinely making personal sacrifices to put their lives on the line to protect the continent’s magnificent wildlife and habitats. Yet they are so much more than just law enforcement officers: rangers are teachers, community support workers, mediators, researchers and so much more. Unfortunately, resources are not keeping pace with the scale of the challenges they are trying to tackle. For the fourth year running, the Wildlife Ranger Challenge sets out to redress this, by raising critical funding to cover operating costs, including salaries and equipment, for over 10,000 rangers. This will help them protect threatened wildlife and some of the continent's most vulnerable areas, while also protecting communities and securing coexistence with wildlife, as well as providing for their own families.
