womens role in conservation highlighted

World Female Ranger Week (June 23-30), spearheaded by international NGO, How Many Elephants, celebrates and supports female wildlife rangers who are changing the game and paving the way for women to stand alongside men at the forefront of conservation.

Building on the success of World Female Ranger Week last year, which reached over 500 million viewers worldwide, this years event is set to be even bigger. There will be online and live events, global media interviews, plus a fundraising platform to raise vital funds for the rangers worldwide.

As champions of wildlife conservation, female rangers are not only transforming attitudes towards the role of women around the world; they are showing the capabilities and success of females in traditionally male roles.

However, reportedly less than 11% of the global wildlife ranger workforce is female.

Founder of How Many Elephants and World Female Ranger Week, Holly Budge , said:Having patrolled with multiple ranger teams across Africa, Ive seen first-hand how these bold women are impacting lives; protecting wildlife, uplifting communities and empowering other women. World Female Ranger Week highlights the significant gender imbalance in environmental conservation.
