Wildlife Ranger Challenge Launched

Painted Dog Conservation (PDC) Anti-poaching Unit Team and the Hwange National Park Buffer Zone have joined more than 150 ranger teams across Africa in participating in the 2021 Wildlife Ranger Challenge. The wildlife Ranger challenge is a multi-million-dollar fundraising initiative culminating on 18 September and supporting thousands of men and women on the frontline of Africa’s protected areas.

In a statement, the PDC Operations Manager, Mr. David Kuvawoga, has called for public support as they join forces with thousands of rangers to reinforce the anti-poaching efforts. He said Africa’s rangers are stretched to capacity and continue to see drastic cuts in resources and an increase in poaching due to the devastating economic impact of Covid-19.

“The Wildlife Ranger Challenge, a 21km race across the varied and challenging terrain of Africa’s Protected Areas, will support rangers to safeguard the continent’s iconic wildlife for years to come.”

“Wildlife Ranger Challenge will bring together more than 150 ranger teams, across 20 African countries to participate in a series of mental and physical challenges, culminating in the Wildlife Ranger Challenge 21km half marathon on 18 September. The challenge brings rangers’ vital work to the fore and provides a platform for their organizations to generate crucial funding” he said.

He said a global campaign #ForWildlifeRangers will use the power of ranger voices, influencers, and celebrities to issue a call to arms to the public to support Africa’s rangers by donating to the Ranger Fund or by taking part in the Wildlife Ranger Challenge in solidarity, wherever they are in the world.

Funds raised will cover the operating costs for at least 5,000 rangers, enabling them to provide for their families, protect communities and wildlife in some of the continent’s most vulnerable areas. Tusk, Natural State, Game Rangers Association of Africa, The Thin Green Line, For Rangers, and the International Ranger Federation have partnered with 60 conservation areas to launch the pan-African challenge.

In 2020, the Wildlife Ranger Challenge was mobilised and $10m was raised to support over 9,000 rangers who collectively work to protect more than 4,000,000 km2 of conservation areas across Africa providing salaries, equipment, and operating costs.

The Wildlife Ranger Challenge was formed at the start of the COVID-19 global pandemic in 2020, following several conversations between Jonathan Baillie, a global leader in conservation biology, and Mark Scheinberg, a businessman, and philanthropist with a keen interest in conservation and animal welfare. The Wildlife Ranger Challenge is meant to restore thousands of ranger jobs, support communities, and protect wildlife.
