Elephant, Rhino and other species are under threat of extinction in our lifetime.
The recent demand for rhino horn and the resulting resurgence in poaching has reached catastrophic levels.

The next adventure...
ForRangers Gaucho Derby 2022
In 2022, the co-founder of ForRangers Sam Taylor, along with three others, will head to Patagonia to race in the Gaucho Derby, also known as The greatest test of horsemanship on earth.
The Gaucho Derby is a 10 day, 500km multi-horse adventure race, but not in the same way as the Mongol Derby. The race is broken down into 40km or less vetting legs. The high mountains are a test of skill, not flat out speed, so the horses won’t run out of steam. The flatter pampas sections will see the riders turning up the MPH to eat up the miles. For these sections, they will be swapping to fresh horses more regularly.
One mistake navigating could cost them the race with wilderness skills making all the difference as they camp out most nights. Racing hours are from 8am to 6pm, any penalties will be sat out in real time, and the winner will be the rider who crosses the line first.
The team hope to raise $120,000 to support life and health insurance, emergency rations and welfare support to over 2000 rangers across Africa. The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic continues to be felt. Rangers have seen jobs lost, resources slashed, and livelihoods destroyed. All the while, they remain steadfast in protecting what is left of our wilderness. They need our help. Please support them.
