OUR 2019 WORLD RANGER DAY CAMPAIGN
Each year on World Ranger Day we honor the brave men and women fighting on the frontlines for the world’s threatened wildlife and wild spaces.
For this year’s Protect the Protectors campaign, we are focusing on our Wild Tomorrow Fund Ranger Team.
We directly employ seven rangers across our conservancies in South Africa, plus our new conservation land manager, Sizwe. In May this year, we announced our latest protected area: the 1171 acre Mfuleni Conservancy. Expanding our protected areas comes with the need to employ additional rangers to patrol and preserve the reserves.
Our goal is to raise $8500, which will fund salaries for the Ukuwela and Mfuleni ranger teams throughout the rest of 2019.
We’d truly appreciate your support in helping us reach our goal of funding the rangers salaries through 2019.
