Helping to protect and conserve vulnerable wildlife & ecosystems

Welcome to The International Coalition of Ranger Protection (ICORP) – a registered 501(c)(3) Charity that is at the forefront of preserving biodiversity in Southern Africa by advancing the development of a highly specialised field ranger team. This elite unit is our assertive answer to the escalating poaching crisis—a crisis that not only threatens iconic species but undermines community stability and ecological balance.

ICORP is currently developing and deploying a specialised ranger unit, that has been made possible through our valuable supporters, donors, and sponsors. 


Join forces and make a lasting impact. Protecting, conserving, and regenerating vulnerable ecosystems demands a collective approach—making use of technology, expertise, working dogs and horses, dedicated rangers, and community empowerment. Together, we preserve our natural heritage for future generations."

What people are saying about ICORP

My interactions with this brave group of people has been phenomenal. I constantly see Marc McDonald encouraging the teams and motivates everyone like no other leader I have known. They are always kind, caring and committed and they give much more than they receive.  I support ICORP and their volunteers wholeheartedly.
