Campaign by Tusk Trust (RCN 1186533)
Across Africa, the halting of tourism is threatening the livelihoods of rangers and the continent's iconic wildlife. Rangers are the first line of defence to protect endangered specialises and our aim is to support them at this critical time.

Story

As a team of 7, we are aiming to cycle between us 3,000 miles. That’s about 250 hours of cycling and 114,305 calories burned! We’re targeting to raise at least £1 for every mile cycled.

We’re hoping that between our past customers, friends and family – either riding with us on a day, or by doing a virtual ride, walk, or run where you are – that we can double that distance to 6,000 miles – the full distance from the UK to Cape Town.

It's ambitious, but we think that together we can do it. We invite all customers, friends and family to join our Far and Wild team as honorary members and to share your updates!

Why Ride4Rangers?

In Africa, the halting of tourism is threatening the many people's livelihoods and the continents iconic wildlife. Rangers are the first line of defence to protect endangered specialises but in many places, there is no longer the funding for them.

Far and Wild is proud to be joining the African Travel Industry in raising funds to support African Rangers and wildlife by joining #Ride4Rangers.

All funds raised will go towards supporting the salaries and deployment of African Rangers during this crisis. Tusk is aiming to support 5,000 rangers over the next 6-9 months and has been established with generous match-funding, doubling the impact of every penny given.

Here's how you support could help!

  • £100 could purchase a GPS enabled camera to monitor wildlife
  • £200 could fund a Lion Guard Rangers salary for a month 
  • £250 could provide materials needed to build a predator-proof livestock enclosure
  • £500 could sponsor a 4-man anti-poaching team in the field for a month.

Don't forget, every penny you give is being matched by a generous donor, so if you give £20, it ends up as £40!
