Ol Pejeta Conservancy's rhino rangers find themselves in challenging situations on an all too regular basis.  They are on the front-line protecting dwindling numbers of rhino.  The 90,000 acre conservancy is home to three of the last five northern white rhinos left in existence, 23 white rhinos and 105 black rhinos.

Protecting these rhinos can be dangerous.  Poaching attemps in the area are not infrequent and the rangers are the main line of defence between poacher and rhino.  Thanks to the efforts of this team, just two rhino have been poached in the last eighteen months and in neither case did the poachers get away with the horn.

Keeping the ranger team safe is expensive.  They are given world-class training, and are kitted out with the latest in equipment and support, from night vision goggles to GPS tracking, to a team of tracking and support dogs.

Ol Pejeta covers these costs mainly with tourism income.  Sadly misconceptions about Ebola (Kenya has had no cases and is further from the epicentre than many European countries) and some instabilities in remote parts of Kenya (far from most tourist routes) have hit tourism numbers hard.  Keeping the team funded and equipped is an ongoing challenge.

We are aiming to raise enough to safeguard the wages for the forty strong team for the next six months.  This is £75,000.  Any which way, every single pound contributed will help secure the rangers, that secure the rhino, for us and for future generations.  Thank you for your time.
