The Rangers of the Protected areas of the Lower Zambezi Valley are honoured to be part of this amazing effort for African rangers by African rangers.
YOUR support is needed now more than ever as years of conservation progress is undermined by the devastating impacts of Covid-19.
This global campaign #ForWildlifeRangers aims to use the power of the ranger voices, influences and celebrities to help the public to support the WRC fund raising campaign.
Your contribution will help support Lower Zambezi Valley Rangers and the livelihoods in and around these protected areas.
Every dollar that is raised via JUSTGIVING will earn an additional 25% match!
Your donation also helps to unlock vital funds for other ranger teams across Africa: the Scheinberg Relief Fund will donate the equivalent of 75% of the amount raised to the Ranger Fund!
