Ol Pejeta is the largest black rhino sanctuary in east Africa, and home to two of the world’s last remaining northern white rhino. It is the only place in Kenya to see chimpanzees, in a sanctuary established to rehabilitate animals rescued from the black market. It has some of the highest predator densities in Kenya, and still manages a very successful livestock programme. Ol Pejeta also seeks to support the people living around its borders, to ensure wildlife conservation translates to better education, healthcare and infrastructure for the next generation of wildlife guardians.
In 2018, ForRangers and Ol Pejeta Conservancy pioneered the first virtual ultra in Kenya. Enlisting participants from all over the world, the marathon was 1,245 kms long around Kenya''s rhino sanctuaries and traced a virtual route between Kenya’s rhino parks and conservancies.
As you probably know, I love marathon running but hate when the money I spend is just funding a t-shirt. Instead, in 2019, I will be taking part in this Ultra Marathon to help raise funds for the Ol Pejeta rangers. By contributing, you will help make sure the Ol Pejeta rangers have everything they need to continue their critical work in conservation.
