Power Up A Ranger aims to support the rangers in the forests of Kalimantan (Borneo) and Sumatra in their conservation battle to protect endangered animals by providing the rangers with more equipment.
How will we use the funds that we raise?
It is becoming increasingly difficult and dangerous for rangers in Indonesia do their job, as the rate of deforestation continues to grow rapidly. Deforestation, forest openings and habitat encroachment cause not only threats to endangered species, but also humans residing in the buffer zone of these forests. The rangers risk their lives on a daily basis to guard the Kalimantan and Sumatran forests and endangered species from illegal loggers and poachers, while ensuring that these endangered animals avoid conflict with humans.
The rangers are conservation heroes at the front line of protecting nature. With your support, we will be able to equip rangers with higher quality safety gear, tools and shelter that can protect them from trekking accidents. Your support will also empower the rangers with better transportation so that they do not have to navigate through mountains on foot on a daily basis.
WWF-Indonesia prioritises their work in important centers of biodiversity known as the “Global 200 ecoregions”. WWF-Indonesia is currently running conservation programs in 23 sites in 16 provinces throughout Indonesia in a number of marine, freshwater and forest ecosystems.
