TO raise the profile of Africa’s rangers, the Game Rangers’ Association of Africa (GRAA) has launched the Ranger Legacy Project ‘Soul of the Ranger’ campaign.

This initiative will reveal the critical and diverse roles that rangers play in conservation. By using iconic images taken by internationally acclaimed conservation photographer and ranger, Peter Chadwick, the challenges rangers face is documented, and their stories shared.

The GRAA has developed a comprehensive African Ranger Imagery Library that has over 1000 images, showcasing rangers the diversity of their work, from wildlife monitoring to visitor safety, community relations, fire management, erosion control, alien plant control and counter poaching. It highlights diversity of the people involved and the beautiful landscapes and wildlife that rangers work to protect.
