Actions for Animals

 
Wildlife and our last remaining wild places are being destroyed because of human action or inaction and because of our own short –term greed.

Get to know a wildlife ranger

If you’ve wondered what it’s like being involved in wildlife ranger work, take a look at this video from the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.

Lewa serves as a safe refuge for wildlife such as the black rhino, Grevy's Zebra,  elephant, lion, giraffe, wild dog and other iconic wildlife species in Kenya. It is also home to over 400 species of birds.

John Pameri is in charge of rhino monitoring, the management of Lewa’s entry points and radio communication.

He walked 100 kilometres to Lewa when he was 18 because his dream was to have a job protecting wildlife.

Twenty five years later, John Pameri is Head of General Security with the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy. 

Find out more about John by taking a look at this video below.


A big thank you to John, his rangers and everyone at the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy for all you do to protect wildlife and to bring peace and stability to the regions you work in. 

Lewa sees a future where everyoneo in Kenya values, protects and benefits form wildlife, so that communities can derive their day to day livelihoods in ways that are compatable with wildlife habitat.  Lewa invests in programmes such as  education, water, health care, micro-enterprise and youth empowerment. 

And it constantly adapts to changing threats to the wildlife there, posed by poaching activities.

The rangers are passionate about wildlife and conservation.  You can help by donating to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy here.
