World Female Ranger Week was launched by conservation charity How Many Elephants (HME) to celebrate and support female wildlife rangers across the globe. "They're bold, changing the game and paving the way for women to stand alongside men at the forefront of conservation, but they need allies," says Holly Budge, HME founder, who has patrolled extensively with female ranger teams across Africa.

"As champions of wildlife conservation, as role models, as educators and as beacons of hope, female rangers are not only transforming attitudes towards the role of women around the world, but are also showing the capabilities and success of females in traditionally male roles. However, less than 11 per cent of the global wildlife ranger workforce is female."
