What do rangers need?
Rangers need boots, packs, first– aid kits, camping gear and rations to help them to safely navigate the forest, as well as GPS kits to help specialists coordinate their movement.
On top of that, patrol leaders need the funding to pay their rangers a decent and deserved wage. The passion and commitment of these field teams – made up entirely of local people – is inspiring. It’s crucial we give them the resources they need to get the job done.
Once these rangers are kitted out and on the move, they work to deter poaching, dismantle snares and track vulnerable gorilla groups, helping to keep them safe.
