ca is the translation of "and"
Sanskrit and English do not have the same word order. "and" is postposed in Sanskrit. So अनुरज संरक्ष च is literally "love protect and."
See The Cambridge Introduction to Sanskrit
There is another example of the postposed "and" on that page:
गच्छति भरति gacchati bharati ca, literally "he goes he carries and" translates into English as "he goes and carries."
