My Story

Field Rangers undertake one of the world’s most dangerous jobs. On a daily basis, they face life-threatening situations, with over 100 individuals losing their lives each year whilst fighting to protect the African wilderness. Without these brave people, there would be little hope for the continent’s incredible wild species.

We are raising funds for the Pelorus Foundation, an inspirational charity that places conservation at the forefront of its decisions. The Foundation strives to protect, preserve and promote at-risk wildlife and environments by supporting communities on the front line of conservation. Acting as a crucial catalyst to a network of individuals and organisations, the Foundation provides them with critical support to protect and defend species and habitats from the array of threats they face. Training Rangers to fight crime is just one of the actions the Pelorus Foundation is taking to help protect our increasingly endangered wild habitats and species.

At Pelorus we’re all about taking the paths less trodden, whilst seeking unique experiences in amazing natural environments. This is why we have chosen to embark on the ‘Three Off-Peaks Challenge.’ Going against the norm and selecting our own mountains, we will attempt to climb three of the nation’s highest peaks in under 24 hours. Starting in Scotland, we will tackle Cairn Gorm before driving to the Lake District to climb Skiddaw at night. On the last leg, we’ll finish our challenge by hiking Snowdonia’s Carned Llewelyn.

By doing this challenge, we hope to raise awareness of not only the Pelorus Foundation but the necessity to protect our extraordinary planet and the wild species with which we share our home.
