Boots on the Ground
We have set ourselves a target to help 500 rangers and eco-guards across Central Africa who work tirelessly out in the field to protect forest elephants and their habitat. We aim to provide new high quality boots and five pairs of durable socks to 500 rangers across the Congo Basin. We launched the initiative called Boots on the Ground, which provides essential training equipment for anti-poaching units deployed to protect the forest elephants.
