Teranga Ranch suffered a devastating loss last weekend. Around 2pm on Saturday, Feb. 27th, an electrical fire broke out. It took firefighters several hours to put the fire out. The Teranga administrative office was completely destroyed.
Unfortunately, we lost EVERYTHING that was in our space. We lost all the tools and resources we use to educate and advocate for our local wildlife- our event booth supplies, projections and camera equipment, Raccoon-in-the-attic kits, our super cool bat detectors, our loaner wildlife cameras, wildlife tracking camp kits for kids- everything. We do a variety of things that nobody else is doing and we need your help to get back up and running as quickly as possible. It has taken us 15 years to create and build what was Teranga. It is going to be a massive effort to rebuild, redeveloop, reorganize and move forward..
In addition to our GoFundMe, we will also be updating our Amazon wishlist in case you’d like to help in a different way.
Teranga is nothing without her supporters.
Thank you for helping us recover.
About Teranga Ranch
Teranga Ranch is a wildlife education organization that educates Californians about local wildlife and teaches them how to coexist. We go to schools and homeowners association meetings. We hold community meetings when there is a perceived wildlife issue, like coyotes. We bring humane hazing devices to pass out and we discuss humane alternatives to poison, traps and guns. We teach community classes about local wildlife, we present workshops and we host field trips. We provide opportunities for anyone to get outside and involve themselves with wildlife, nature and science. We have our own YouTube channel and host regula virtual kids programs.
Dana Stangel, a credentialed Biology teacher, is the founder and executive director.
