Did you know that being a wildlife ranger is one of the most dangerous jobs on the planet? Over 100 rangers died in the line of duty in 2018 alone. Today is World ranger day, a day where we acknowledge and celebrate the brave men and women who risk their safety and security every single day on behalf of wild things and wild places. Please join IEF in thanking them on World Ranger Day!
Rangers in Uganda’s Murchison Falls only have 3 old, unreliable vehicles with which to find and catch poachers, appear in court, deliver supplies, tend to injured wildlife, service community needs, and more. Let’s show our gratitude for their brave, selfless work, help them catch more poachers, while keeping morale high by giving them a new vehicle. Including our initial donation from a generous donor, we are over 70% of the way there! We only need $13,400 more to get wheels on the ground!
