What do rangers need?
The conservancies where rhinos live are enormous, and rangers need to constantly be on the move to look for any sign of imminent poaching.
To do that, they need off-road vehicles, fuel, mechanics and spare parts so that they can be ready at a moment’s notice.
For the rangers themselves, a long expedition is impossible without raincoats, rations and a comfortable pair of boots. They need everything you’d expect for days of trekking into the wild – first- aid kits, water purification tablets, hammocks, machetes and stoves.
Dog-handling teams need constant subsistence and training for their canine companions, while each dog is equipped with the protective equipment needed to keep them safe in the field.
With that equipment in hand, these teams have proved to be incredibly effective forces for conservation in areas where they’re properly funded. With your donations, we can equip more of them to protect more rhinos.
