Rangers are the experts at the front line of rhino conservation. In any patrol, they will identify individual rhinos, differentiating each one through their unique characteristics, while remaining on guard and ready to respond if poachers attack. As you might imagine, such poaching incidents are extremely traumatic; not only are rangers faced with the deaths of animals they care for, but also the very real danger of confronting armed gangs whose only aim is to kill a rhino, no matter what.

With your donations, we can support rangers. In the past 12 months, we’ve been able to provide extra kit and equipment for rangers in South Africa, improve ranger facilities in Kenya, and boost the morale of teams so that they can continue to do their jobs effectively, despite how tough it is.

Your donations this World Ranger Day can help provide more uniform, training and equipment to rangers in Africa and Asia, so that they can do their critical jobs safely and effectively.

"Rangers are the most important aspect of protecting wildlife - trusted boots on the ground – men who are prepared and trained to work long hours monitoring and protecting our wildlife."
