The financial means of the ERF as a nonprofit organization based on volunteers are quite poor. This working group focuses on developing financial support for the ERF-activities directly and to provide resources for Rangers who need financial support to take part in our programs. Also this working group is working on a strengthened Ranger image throughout Europe. Only if we are able to promote our goals and the crucial work Rangers around the world provide for protected areas, for wildlife and biological diversity, we can achieve support.
