A,

Across East Africa elite rangers are deploying to the world’s worst poaching hotspots, training and equipping local communities with the skills and gear they need to stop the slaughter of endangered wildlife.

1,900 rangers trained by this elite group have helped reduce poaching to almost zero in the areas they protect.

But poaching is on the rise again everywhere else, and there are thousands of animals that need protection. That's why the team behind this amazing project is asking for your help now to train twice as many rangers – and save twice as many endangered animals from deadly poachers.

In just two weeks, 11 black rhinos were found slaughtered – so every moment counts.

We don’t have much time. Experts warn that if we don’t act quickly, we could see the end of African elephants, rhinos, and gorillas in our lifetime.

But the illegal wildlife trade is not easy to take down – the UN estimates it’s worth between $7- $23 billion a year – one of the most high-paying criminal enterprises.

It’s estimated that up to 75% of rangers in Africa aren’t adequately trained and supported to do their jobs. Yet they are the first and only line of defence to stop poachers from entirely decimating the remaining population of majestic animals like the African elephant and white rhino.

An amazing organisation called the Thin Green Line is changing that, reaching vast, remote areas all while keeping the cost of training down, freeing up much needed funds for the specific patrol equipment rangers need to carry out their roles as safely and effectively as possible. They’re ready to expand, but just need the funds to do it.
