My story

Rangers are Africa’s unsung heroes. They don’t just fight poaching - they are conservationists, teachers, community support workers, leaders and much more.

The Wildlife Ranger Challenge, organised by Tusk and culminating on 17th September, celebrates their many roles, and is raising much-needed funds to support their work.

Honeyguide empowers communities by building up their in-house capabilities to run Wildlife Management Areas as community-protected areas in an effort to achieve sustainability. Randilen Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is responsible for protecting 312 kilometre square of land under the 2012 Tanzanian National Wildlife Management Area Regulations.

Randilen WMA had a goal to become a sustainable community-based conservation area by 2021. However, Covid-19 struck and with it brought uncertainty and the risk of losing more than just their goals, to lose all that they had invested in. The Wildlife Ranger Challenge restored hope, and helped the rangers realise that they were not alone.

Randilen WMA has become the role model of community conservation areas in Tanzania; where communities and conservation organisations visit Randilen to learn of their challenges and successes. As we start to see some tourism return, it is important that the rangers’ work in Randilen continues. Funds from WRC 2022 will ensure the rangers are able to continue their good work and have the equipment and training to provide protection for both people and wildlife in 2022.

Give today, and the Scheinberg Relief Fund will match every dollar donated, amplifying your impact. Follow campaign updates on social media with #ForWildlifeRangers

We believe that the future of wild spaces in Africa hinges on community-driven solutions, where local communities are in the driver’s seat of conservation. When provided with the right tools, resources and support, communities have the capacity, skills, relationships and local knowledge to run conservation areas that safeguard their natural resources. For the community-driven model to succeed, initiatives must be locally owned and led to be sustainable. Image credit: Monica Dalmasso
