Volunteering can be an important support to the work of rangers, including in the fight against poaching. In our webinar series in cooperation with the Israel Nature and Parks Authority (INPA), we show under which conditions the use of volunteers is most effective.

Sharon Golan Hershkovitz, director for volunteering at INPA, reports on her extensive experience with volunteers. She answers questions like these:

  • What are the prerequisites for successful volunteer management?
  • Under what circumstances does the use of volunteers benefit more than it ties up capacities of rangers and other staff?
  • What are suitable areas of operation?
  • Why do protected areas need volunteers other than for their direct purpose?
  • And how do they help to stop poaching?

Watch our webinar to answer these and other questions – and share it with colleagues who are also involved in volunteering and anti-poaching.

Volunteers also help in situations of environmental disasters such as tar pollution of beaches.
