A breath of relief can be taken now by the government rangers in wildlife as the Liwonde National Park management has decided to jump in with support.
The African park in Liwonde yesterday organised a wildlife rangers challenge race as a way of sourcing funds to donate to wildlife rangers from the government department as a relief during the COVID-19 period.
“Well, this is the day and wildlife rangers across the world are raning in solidarity with rangers who have suffered losses due to COVID-19 and that’s why we are here,” said Craig Reid, the Africa Parks Manager, Liwonde National Park.
“We understand that our colleagues from government department are suffering a lot during this COVID-19 period so we thought it wise to come in and give the little we have as we work together for serving the wildlife,” he added.
Craig believes that through the funds raised from the race, wildlife rangers from government side will be helped.
Craig further urges Malawians across the country to support and protect wildlife as it helps in tourism industry.
