Wildlife Ranger Challenge

Unite With Rangers Across Africa...

The Wildlife Ranger Challenge was first organised in 2020 by Tusk and NATURAL STATE to support over 10,000 wildlife rangers across Africa’s protected areas. The COVID-19 pandemic led to these men and women having their salaries significantly cut, leaving families without income and wildlife vulnerable and unprotected. Close to 100 ranger teams competed in support of their counterparts across the continent, and to bring the sector back to full force.

As we tentatively begin to emerge from the pandemic, our project partners and Africa’s wildlife and communities face a long and difficult recovery. Wildlife Rangers across Africa are uniting once again to support their community recovery as well as the recovery of wildlife and the natural world.

The Wildlife Ranger Challenge 2021 will launch on World Ranger Day, 31st July, and will culminate in a pan-African race day on Saturday 18th September.

All the funds raised or donated will be doubled by the Scheinberg Relief Fund.
