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 and Scouts based in Dande Safari Area (523 sq. km), and Mbire District form part of the patrol effort across the unique landscape that makes up the Zambezi Valley’s 12,820 sq km of wildlife protected areas. Tashinga Initiative - Dande-Mbire Rangers protect territorial integrity, undertake biological monitoring, conservation management, community relations and manage equipment, resources and tourism. Rangers patrol in rugged and remote conditions, along the Mozambican and Zambian international borders.

WRC Grants have significantly supported a total of 350 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 Dande ZimParks Rangers could be far-reaching: to continue providing those monthly, all-important patrol food hampers, that Rangers are operationalised with appropriate and essential patrol kit, vehicle patrols through Dande, plus the communal land north and south of Dande, need fuel each month and of course, Rangers’ morale is strengthened through the provision of life insurance cover.

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