European Wilderness Society is happy to announce that our training course for Ukrainian rangers will continue! During our first ranger training course, we identified the need for more trainings: to improve communication skills of each ranger and to deepen their understanding about solutions to common challenges within Ukrainian protected areas. Now, jointly with Ukrainian partners, we have created a new training course.
