Supporting the hero rangers who protect our wildlife

As the year comes to end, it is time to give thanks.

At our STS South Africa base, the team decided to thank those who truly deserve it.  The team put together some bush orientated first aid kits for several of the rangers protecting our wildlife and putting their lives on the line.

STS would like to express a huge THANK YOU to all of our rangers who have helped us and wildlife throughout 2022! From keeping a close eye on our precious wildlife, to removing harmful snares and traps that can cause harm to these animals, we truly couldn’t do the work we do without you! You are our unsung heroes!

We will continue to support our wildlife guardians in any way we can. This is just another way in which we can add extra value through our various networks and collaborations.

 

A massive thank you as well to all of our dedicated donors and supporters that have supported us in 2022! With your help we are excited to continue to Create Hope from Hurt in 2023!
