• About Rally for Rangers 2017! Ride with us from August 24 to September 6, 2017!

    Rally for Rangers raises funds to purchase new motorbikes and gear for rangers— which they then use to patrol National Parks of Mongolia. We will be riding to Otgontenger National Park in 2017 to deliver ten motorcycles to the Rangers. Would you like to join us to make a difference in the lives of our rangers and preservation of a sacred ecosystem?

  • Ride with us to Otgontenger National Park!

    Rally for Rangers will feature the Yamaha AG200 motorcycle ridden by you and donated to a park ranger at Otgontenger National Park in central Mongolia. The only thing more rewarding and exhilarating than riding 1,000 kilometers of Mongolian dirt, mud, and river bottom is handing over the keys to an (almost) new motorcycle so these rangers can better protect the incredible resources of their national park.

    When I heard about a project to deliver new motorcycles to park rangers in Mongolia I immediately knew I had to be a part of it. As an avid motorcycle fan and rider, as well as a park ranger in Yosemite National Park, I was honored and inspired to be invited to participate in the Blue Waves Campaign Lake Hovsgol Motorcycle Rally.

    When we were greeted at midnight by the rest of the Mongol Ecology Center team at the Chinggis Khaan international airport, I was put to ease immediately. We quickly set off on a whirlwind two week long adventure that I will cherish forever. I forged international friendships that will last a lifetime, with an experience that will always remain in my heart. I cannot wait to do it again in the future!

    I felt truly honoured to be a part of the 2014 Blue Waves Rally Campaign. The best memory I have is the look of joy on the faces of the Lake Hovsgol Park Rangers when they realised that it was true, a group of foreigners were donating motorbikes to them, something they had heard about but never really believed would happen.

  • Anton Berteaux

    When I first heard about the ride, I thought ``well that should be fun!`` Then I realized that there was fund raising involved and started to worry about being able to raise enough money to make it possible to go. The fund raising turned out to be almost and much fun as the ride! I mean, who doesn't like to throw parties, and make fun of people for money?

After a successful completion of its 2014 Rally for Rangers, the Mongol Ecology Center was encouraged to continue the campaign into 2015. The goal again was to raise awareness about National Parks in Hovsgol province of Mongolia and raise enough money to purchase 20 more motorcycles. By July 18, 2015, the MEC had volunteers from around the world to deliver all the 20 motorcycles to the parks. Within the last 2 years, the MEC has equipped 35 rangers with reliable transportation and gear, allowing them to cover and protect the Hovsgol ecosystem at large.

What is Rally for Rangers?

The Rally for Rangers helps us raise funds to purchase new motorbikes and gear for rangers— which they then use to patrol National Parks of Mongolia.

In 2014, we were able to present an array of new motorcycles for Lake Hovsgol National Park. A team of 15 intrepid riders from around the globe—from America, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, and Mongolia—participated in this cross-country trek. They rode 1500 miles through the Mongolian highlands, ultimately delivering the motorcycles to park rangers.

In 2015, our campaign team is raised funds to equip 20 more park rangers in Tengis Shishged, Ulaan Taiga and Horidol Saridag National Parks—all key protected areas of Taiga region adjacent to Lake Hovsgol National Park and larger part of the ecosystem.
