Effective rangers need a ranger wellbeing program

What it takes to be a ranger_©PeterChadwick_AfricanConservationPhotographer

Given the difficult often high risk work that Africa’ rangers face in trying to address the current poaching onslaught, it is imperative that there is a well established ranger well-being program in place to support them.

This program needs to provide legal, psychological, spiritual and recreational support. Having the facilities available and ability to play sport helps hugely with being able to relax and destress from work pressures while also helping with keeping the rangers fit for duty.
