Meet the African Women on the Front Line of Animal Conservation

A 2016 World Wildlife Fund survey of 570 rangers across 12 African countries including Zimbabwe, Zambia and South Africa found that just 19 percent were women. According to Malawi’s department of national parks and wildlife, since 2006 there has been an increase in women rangers. However, the intake has been low – the Kasungu park only has eight female rangers out of 82 field rangers. In all national parks in the country, there are only 52 female rangers out of a total of 478 rangers, representing 11 percent.
