Raising Funds For African Parks

“The protection of the world’s most vulnerable ecosystems and landscapes needs a bold approach and the enthusiastic support of sportsmen and women. For over 20 years, African Parks has been striving to save Africa’s last wild places, trying to innovate solutions to address the continental challenges we are facing and create a better future for people and wildlife.” – African Parks

About The Run Africa Project

On July 31st 2020 – World Ranger Day,  Ryan is gearing up for his next adventure in the name of the environment, and will attempt a Guinness World Record Fastest journey from Cape Town to Cairo journey on foot (but running vice versa, “downhill”) from Cairo to Cape Town.

Running in excess of 11 500km, in 313 days, through 10 African countries and visiting 5 African Parks along the way. Ryan’s goal as a runner, photographer and cinematographer is to raise funds for African Parks and awareness about the critical work that rangers are performing in the field. Without Rangers on the ground, no effective law enforcement is possible and a critical link in counter-poaching efforts is missing. 

Along the way, Ryan will be doing everything he can to get people’s attention. On his rest days, he will be stopping by communities to talk to as many people as he can about the issues and the work African Parks is doing in Wildlife conservation and highlighting the importance of rangers on the ground.

While being followed by a camera man and two support vehicles to document the expedition, Ryan will be running with a camera in hand for the entire route creating social awareness content and publish a weekly online episode geared towards educating the world on the epic project, the environmental issues along the way and speaking first hand to the rangers on the ground.
