The Thin Green Line Foundation protects and conserves the natural environment by encouraging and assisting individuals to work as Rangers. Our work is focused on supporting Rangers in developing nations, conflict zones and indigenous Rangers in Australia and abroad. We protect nature's protectors. The Foundation funds Ranger programs and provided support to widows and orphans of Rangers killed in the line of duty. This support was delivered across Africa, Asia, Central America, South America and Oceania. The Foundation supported a range of conservation programs that prevent or minimise the risk of Rangers being injured or killed during their work. This is delivered via training programs and provision of equipment.
Description of charity's activities and outcomes
Over 1,000 Rangers have been trained across the world in the skills they need to return home safely to their families.
58 families of Rangers killed in the line of duty have been supported with our Fallen Ranger grants, keeping school-aged children in education, and building livelihoods through the purchase of crops, livestock and setting up small market businesses.
