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 October 2022, the 5th European Ranger Congress (ERC), that was originally planned in the Bavarian Forest National Park in Germany, took place in Tirana, Albania. After the congress in Bavaria had to be cancelled due to Covid 19, the ERC has gathered more than 100 rangers from Europe and the world. The ERF now is focussing on on site training, accompanied by online offers to connect to the many new ideas from the ERC and to further develop the ranger profession.

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.
