The Wildlife Ranger Challenge campaign connects thousands of rangers from 24 African nations with many thousands of supporters from more than 90 countries around the world – uniting the global north and the global south in a common cause.
On 16th September 2023 more than 100 ranger teams spanning the diverse and varied terrains of Africa’s protected areas competed in a coordinated 21km race across their respective landscapes carrying 22kg of kit. They were joined by supporters from around the globe, running in solidarity #ForWildlifeRangers.
The Wildlife Ranger Challenge brings together competitors around common goals:
- To raise vital funds for frontline conservation efforts
- To drive awareness of the importance of the rangering profession
- To communicate the challenges that rangers face
