Excerpt:

Female rangers are champions of wildlife conservation, educators, and are just as capable and successful in the position as male rangers.

Holly Budge said: "Having patrolled with multiple ranger teams across Africa, I've seen first-hand how these bold women are impacting lives; Protecting wildlife, uplifting communities and empowering other women. WFRW highlights the significant gender imbalance in environmental conservation."

Hear about the female rangers and their mission to save wildlife.
