FOR RANGERS

$16,600 to the For Rangers initiative, which focuses on rangers’ welfare, thanks to the Wallace family ($5,000) and March to the Top ($11,600). The founders of For Rangers believe that by improving rangers’ welfare, they will feel invested in their work; with their families looked after and better equipment to do their job, they will be safer, happier, more effective and ultimately less likely to help poaching syndicates out of desperation. The sorts of things it funds include: Accommodation, ablutions blocks (including solar power), mess and kitchen or canteen; Uniforms; Equipment (law enforcement and wildlife monitoring); Training (e.g. law enforcement, First Aid, fitness); Medical (including clinic or hospital cover, life insurance); and Other (e.g. entertainment, motivational trips, financial literacy).

Lolesha Luangwa targets 21 schools in the Game Management Areas surrounding North Luangwa National Park. It is not enough simply to reintroduce rhinos, provide security and hope that local communities will support their conservation and, more broadly, NLCP’s work. It is also necessary to increase local communities’ understanding of and relationship with their local environment by providing support to school curricula and implementing initiatives that allow children and adults to connect conservation with communities, which ultimately benefits the conservation of rhinos, and other endangered species and habitats.
