Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
Our support is focused on park rangers in developing regions, conflict zones and on Indigenous rangers in Australia and abroad. To ensure our support effectively and efficiently reaches the park rangers and widows who need it, we work with in-country professional park ranger associations and like-minded partner non-government organisations to get the best results on the ground with the effectiveness and efficiency of the lowest administration costs This year, the Thin Green Line Foundation provided AUD $558,972 ( of the $690,135 received in donations) to park ranger support programs and support to orphans and widows of park rangers killed in the line of duty. These programs stretched across Africa, Asia, Central America, South America and Oceania. including Indonesia, Zambia, South Africa, Kenya, Thailand, DRC, Uganda, Australia( western desert), Gabon, Guatemala, Brazil, Namibia, Jamaica, Solomon Islands, Tanzania, Vietnam)Over the past 12 months, 52 rangers died whilst protecting the planets threatened species. Of these deaths, 21 were homicides. The Thin Green Line Foundation is working towards zero park ranger deaths in the line of duty. To achieve this, our primary focus is on:-building capacity of park rangers including critical training and equipment-supporting park rangers to share their knowledge and experiences -supporting park rangers and their families -raising community awareness of root causes and solutions to conservation challenges.
