Ranger Support Grants 2021

We invite grant applications for projects that support Rangers in their work on the frontline of conservation. The purpose of our Ranger Support Grants is to assist Rangers in the protection of our wildlife, wild places and cultural spaces; ensuring they can complete their important work in safety using the most efficient and effective methods.

Grants are available for projects that directly support the work and livelihoods of Rangers. All proposals will be evaluated by a Thin Green Line Foundation (TGLF) and International Ranger Federation (IRF) appointed committee based on funding priorities, funds available and quality and quantity of projects submitted. Proposals that support Rangers through the COVID-19 pandemic will be looked upon favourably.

Applications are open from January 19th - February 16th 2021.

TGLF Ranger Support Grants aim to fund projects in the following focus areas:

  • Emergency Response – Providing emergency support for Rangers affected by COVID-19. Funding will be awarded to projects that support Rangers through livelihood/salary support (full, half and quarter salary support available), expenses for medical treatment or the purchase of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as masks, gloves and cleaning products to ensure Rangers stay safe while on patrol and in communities. Support may also be sought for medical, food and accommodation support for Rangers affected by environmental and social crises (unrelated to COVID-19).
  • Train – Projects that support the training, upskilling and education of Rangers.
  • Equip – Projects that provide Rangers with the equipment they need to conduct their role safely, efficiently and sustainably. This may include uniforms, hygiene products, tools and survey equipment. Please note PPE equipment to prevent the spread of COVID should be considered as an “Emergency Response” project.
  • Connect – Connecting Rangers with other Rangers to share skills, knowledge and culture; or Connecting Rangers with their local communities through, for example, environmental education programs, community workshops or alternative livelihood schemes, which foster strong relationships between Rangers and communities.

Jennifer Mann

Programs Coordinator, The Thin Green Line Foundatiobn

Indoor or outdoor, as long as I'm working for nature I'm happy! I currently work as a Programs Coordinator with The Thin Green Line Foundation, drawing on my past experiences working in the field to help Rangers globally. Our work focusses on providing Training, Equipment, Emergency Aid and Networking Opportunities for the people working on the frontlines of conservation. As a former Ranger myself, I adore being outside and connecting others with nature. Personally, I have interests in community development and capacity building, the interface between conservation science and environmental policy, and rewilding! I'm a keen birder and hill-walker, but currently exploring my local lockdown 5km radius!
