Training

Numerous rangers work in protected areas through out Europe and other continents of the world. Rangers work for nature, protecting it and its wildlife. The work of rangers can be challenging yet fulfilling and rewarding at the same time. It is important that every ranger

gets the training and preparations that makes him/her better equipped to take on the ranger work. A standard ranger training is an important tool to maintain and distribute knowledge and increase professionalism within the ranger class.

Ranger training across Europe is diverse and varies greatly between countries. The ERF seeks out to increase porfessionalism amongst rangers, support ranger training and bring rangers across closer together.

In May 2020, the 6th European ranger congress (ERC) was to be held at the Bavarian Forest national park in Germany. The congress had to be cancelled due to Covid19. The ERF focus now on offering Covid19-compliant trainings to European rangers for 2021 or later. Many of the features plannend for the ERC 2020 are now being transferred to several smaller temporally and spatially separated trainings in different European countries with backup-regions.

Do you have ideas for further training or would you like to organise one? The Training Working Group is looking forward to hearing from you.
