Our Story

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 Tashinga Initiative - Hurungwe Safari Area (2,894 sq km) 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. Rangers protect territorial integrity, undertake biological monitoring, conservation management, community relations and manage equipment, resources and tourism.

WRC Grants have significantly supported a total of 245 ZimParks Rangers. The resultant WRC Grants for Rangers in LZV 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.
