ABOUT

For Rangers are a dedicated group of individuals who are raising money for the welfare of rangers who risk their lives daily to protect Africa’s endangered species.

Rather than just tell the story – the For Rangers teams hope that by taking part in some of the hardest, most challenging endurance events on the planet, they can draw attention not only to the plight of Africa’s wildlife and the poaching crisis but importantly, the hardships and dangers the rangers are exposed to in trying to protect our wildlife. And in doing so, raise funds that go directly to rangers’ welfare.

why is For Rangers so important?

  •  Over 1500 rangers have been killed in the line of duty since 2003

  • For Rangers’ mission is to improve the welfare of wildlife rangers, specifically those working on conservancies in Africa

  • For Rangers’ founders are based in Kenya, but its grants benefit a network of conservancies and parks covering 2,500 of the 22,000 rangers currently employed in Africa

  • For Rangers has achieved fundraising goals predominantly through support and recognition of expeditions and extreme physical endurance challenges, raising more than $500,000 in two years, together with more than $600,000 of in-kind donations, with minimal investment or promotion

  • For Rangers’ mission is to improve the welfare of wildlife rangers
