HELP SUPPORT OUR RANGERS
Mara Elephant Project’s Amazon Wish List is a great way for people to directly support MEP rangers. Most items listed are essentials that rangers use on a daily basis when they are stationed in the field for two-week periods focusing on intelligence gathering, mitigating human-elephant conflict, arresting poachers, removing snares, building chili fences or seizing ivory and other contraband.
