In 2022, Game Rangers International (GRI) supported over 160 Wildlife Rangers, protecting 2.3 million hectares across Zambia.

We want to help GRI  by funding the costs for Rangers across three key programmes: Wildlife Rescue (which incorporates the Elephant Orphanage and Zambia Primate Projects), Community Outreach and Resource Protection.

Help GRI to continue their good work and donate now!

5 could provide a Ranger on patrol rations for 1 day.

10 would provide vital First Aid equipment.

35 would provide an hour of fuel for the Aerial Support Unit

50 would provide a pair of boots and a raincoat for Rangers operating day and night in inclement weather.

75 would provide a Ranger with basic uniform.

Through three pillars of conservation, Game Rangers International have established the greatest impact upon the landscapes where we focus our projects.  Resource Protection focuses on empowering the frontline Rangers who protect wildlife against threats such as poaching as well as protecting the communities and promoting Human-Wildlife Coexistence.  Our Wildlife Rescue Programme manages the Elephant Orphanage project and Zambian Primate Project, rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing the majestic African Elephants who have been separated from their herd and mother through human intervention or primates who have been involved in the illegal wildlife trade.  The Wildlife Rescue Teams support all wildlife in need where possible.  Finally, Community Outreach focusses on educating, empowering and engaging the communities living contiguous to protected areas, ensuring that this generation and next appreciate the importance of a viable eco-system.GRI knows that working in this holistic way, we have a meaningful and lasting impact.  GRI is also the only organisation in Zambia supporting ranger welfare, working to give rangers and their families access to the medical facilities they need and deserve.

GRI focuses on the areas around national parks, in the buffer zones called Game Management Areas (GMAs) where people come into contact with wildlife.  It is here, we believe, we can have the most impact and where we are seeing the largest rise in conflict between people and wildlife.  Unless we support the communities that live and work in and around these protected areas, we will never win the fight to conserve nature.

30% of Zambia’s landmass is protected, GMAs account for over 70% of these protected areas. They are vitally important for conservation; they form the transit routes for migrating animals and also allow the community to access and benefit from wildlife. Sadly,

they have been overlooked for years. GRI is at the forefront of this change, making sure these areas are supported and invested in.
