Saving the Rangers = Saving Wildlife
From: Two "It's Not About Us" Organizations
Re: Why We're Doing This
Covid-19 has turned the world upside down and we can all see the economic challenges in our own backyard. People are hurting, but that same hurt is being felt across the globe.
In Africa, there are men and women on the front lines watching over endangered animals whose jobs, salaries, health care, child care, and supplies are all similarly in jeopardy. Although Africa seems a world away, we share in the same struggles. But as the rest of the world has slowed down, wildlife poaching has increased making it more important than ever to extend our humanity beyond our borders.
Covid-19 is taking a massive toll on the lives of the people safeguarding the animals. As tourism evaporates and jobs disappear in Africa, not only do individuals, their families, and entire communities suffer, but there is a cascading effect into an already vulnerable wildlife population.
To wildlife conservations like us who are recalibrating the system to establish more effective and scalable anti-poaching programs with human ingenuity and technology, we still are nothing without the noble Rangers on the front lines everyday. We have come together to raise awareness and funds that will go directly to immediate needs on the ground and to equip these peacekeepers with the gear and tools they need to help us together eradicate poaching in our lifetime.
The insights, initiatives, and innovations our respective teams deploy are intended to be blueprints shared across the conservation community. Animals are still leaving us at a record pace; The timelines until the extinction of key species has been amplified due to Covid. Rangers are the lifeline to conservation success and we thank you for your support. A little goes such a long way.
The African Community & Conservation Foundation & Zambezi Partners
The African Community & Conservation Foundation (ACCF) and Zambezi Partners have united to bring awareness to the plight of the Rangers. Proceeds from this event will be shared and spread among the various organizations that each group supports on the ground in sub-Saharan Africa. The goal is to address the urgent essentials due to Covid-19's impact on their livelihoods, supplies, and services and begin to fortify their ranks with the technological advances that will reset the wildlife extinction clock.
