In vulnerable ecosystems around the world, wildlife rangers play a critical role protecting nature from illegal logging and poaching, saving some of our planet’s most iconic animal and plant species from extinction. It’s a herculean task, and one that is made more challenging by lack of adequate equipment and supplies. For over half of rangers, this includes even their most basic gear – the uniform and boots that they wear every day.
To help support those on the front line of conservation, RangerLab, a UK-based charity, is raising funds to deliver essential kit for rangers around the world. And they’re doing so by selling essential kit for you: their very own RangerLab socks. Made in the UK from 76% recycled materials, the socks are stylish and comfortable (something we can personally testify to), and above all help to fund RangerLab’s mission to equip and empower wildlife rangers.
RangerLab’s conservation partners include organisations based everywhere from sub-Saharan Africa to Asia. Recent projects have included providing period products to women in the field in Zimbabwe and supplying a range of equipment, including thermal clothing and kitchen facilities, to those working in India and Kyrgyzstan.
If you’re in the market for a new pair of socks, look no further.
