Uniforms for rangers project
Working in >45° C temperatures with humidty close to 100%, in thick thorny bush, and patrolling many kilometres per day surrounded by extremely dangerous wildlife while facing off with armed poachers.
The job of a ranger is not easy and takes truly dedicated and special people. The least each ranger should have is a decent uniform for these conditions that offers protection and builds pride.
Uniforms for 81 rangers and 30 bush hats where donated by Rehabitate Wildlife Fund to staff in Ndumo Game Reserve, Tembe Elephant Park, and Sileza Game Reserve.
The Zululand and Maputaland bush can be unforgiving. It is full of thorny and toxic plants and the ground can be soft beach sand to hard and slippery when wet. Elephants, rhinos, buffalo, lions and many other animals are extremely dangerous and a ranger has to always be alert and focused.
Having decent uniforms and good strong boots that are light but tough can be the difference between life and death and make the work of a ranger so much easier.
