Event Details

One of the first rangers were those working at the US national parks as well as those active in the national forests since 1898. Rangers are the people who are most often in the field, working for the protection and conservation of protected areas. As a member of the International Ranger Federation, the European Wilderness Society is contributing to the awareness raising of the important role of rangers as well as to the training of protected areas’ staff with the purpose of supporting them to become professional rangers.

Please register RSVP for this course.

As part of the five-session online training course “Ranger training on Tourism and Waste management in Protected Areas”, Ukrainian Protected Area staff, NGOs, interest groups and other stakeholders from Ukraine attending a minimum four out of five sessions will receive a certificate issued by the Ukrainian State Environmental Academy of post-graduates and management and the European Wilderness Society. Please see under Related Events the other online training sessions.
