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.

Ngare Ndare is a 5550-hectare indigenous forest. It’s home to a large population of birds and wildlife, and has been wholly depended on by a population of 17,000 people for water, pasture, firewood, traditional medicine and some areas set for beekeeping.
The forest is protected by rangers from the communities around the forest with great knowledge of the area. These rangers work over 3,000 hours each in a year in various roles like; daily patrols, wildlife monitoring and data collection. Ngare Ndare Forest Trust rangers participated in 2021 and 2023 WRC which helped in acquiring new uniforms, increased deployment since resources like rangers camping equipment and more ration was acquired and most importantly the WRC has helped in the physique and general wellbeing of our rangers. The WRC also helped in team building with community members who cheered and ran alongside our rangers.

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