„Biodiversity on the Edge – working strategies for Rangers in a rapidly changing World

2020 is an important goal of national and international conservation policy. The topic area of biodiversity in the protected areas of Europe and the challenges rangers face will be the main topics of the conference. The aim is to improve the quality of work of rangers through better networking, integration of volunteers and high quality “train the trainer programmes”. The European Congress in 2020 in the Bavarian Forest is a culmination of the recent efforts to “revolutionize” the ranger system in Germany and beyond. 
The Congress, the follow-up of the topics and the resulting potential projects shall serve as a contribution to improve the quality of protected area management in the National Natural Landscapes
