What can be done?
The Game Rangers Association of Africa and SATIB Insurance Brokers endeavor to make the rangers of Africa safer and provide them with the necessary protection they need to comfortably and confidently perform their duties in the field. We have recently launched the Safe Ranger Project alongside Medwise Safety Services which trains rangers in the necessary practical skills needed to perform remote area first aid. This project recognises that if a ranger is wounded in the line of duty, it is often the minutes immediately after the incident that are most important. Knowing how to stabilise a trauma emergency can save a person’s life.
We also recognise that for rangers to confidently perform their duties in the field, they need adequate insurance protection, knowing that if they are wounded in the line of duty that they will receive adequate support. Apart from their own welfare, rangers also seek to have their families supported, should an unfortunate event occur. We have been on a long road to develop insurance plans for rangers across Africa at a rate rangers can afford. We also understand that the methods of payment and the time it takes to finalise these are significant factors affecting Africa’s rangers.
With this in mind, the GRAA has partnered with SATIB Insurance Brokers to create a unique product for rangers across Africa, offering cover 24/7, even when rangers are off duty. The product can serve as a primary or additional source of cover to rangers. Sharing similar views for the conservation of Africa’s wildlife, the GRAA was confident to partner with SATIB, who has been an industry leader for the past 25 years.
There are an estimated 20 000 rangers in Africa. We want them protected with what we believe is an essential cover. If your business relies on a wilderness or conservation area being in place then do the right thing and act now. Covers are currently available for Rangers in South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Mozambique, Angola, Kenya, Tanzania & Uganda with further territories being introduced in time.
We cannot guarantee the work of rangers will become less dangerous, but with #rangerprotect we hope to restore rangers’ confidence and morale, providing them with the necessary protection to ensure they and their families are looked after, should something happen to them whilst performing their noble work.
