In a unique collaborative effort between the SANParks Honor- ary Rangers, StopRhinoPoach- and the Frankfurt-based KfW Development Bank, funds have been made available to sponsor the costs of the rangers to travel and participate in the Berlin Marathon.

Rangers Running for Rhino is an initiative founded by Bruce Leslie, Regional Ranger for the Special Rangers in the Kruger National Park that aims to do just that. “By giving them the opportunity to participate in this prestigious event overseas – an experience probably unobtainable to most rangers – we encourage personal wellbeing and good mental health while ensuring men and women stay active and fit. This in turn generates a positive response and encourages other rangers to run for the rhino and a healthier life,” says Bruce.
