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.

Rangers based in Chewore Safari Area form part of the patrol effort across the unique landscape that makes up the Zambezi Valley’s wildlife protected areas. Chewore is part of the undeniably spectacular Mana-Sapi-Chewore UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Rangers protect territorial integrity, undertake biological monitoring, conservation management, community relations and manage equipment, resources and tourism. Rangers patrol in extremely rugged and remote conditions including amongst prehistoric dinosaur spoors.

WRC Grants have significantly supported a total of 245 ZimParks Rangers. The grants addressed food security through the provision of monthly dry food hampers, the provision of ranger patrol kit such as backpacks and boots, the maintenance of daily field-based and law enforcement operations, thus enhancing morale and efficacy.

For WRC 2024, your support to the Chewore ZimParks Rangers could be far-reaching: the provision of monthly patrol food hampers, Ranger patrol kit, two Zambezi River patrol boats and patrol vehicles can be serviced, maintained, and fuelled. Rangers’ morale is strengthened through the provision of life insurance cover.
