7th World Rangers Congress
Healthy Parks, Hungry People 4-9 November 2012
The congress will be of great value to conservation in the East Africa region and will assist in raising the profile of rangers and especially the emerging community ranger sector of Tanzania. Not only does the growing ranger community of this region require much support, encouragement and capacity building to help ensure the effective management of the outstanding natural assets under their care in this remarkable part of the African continent, but it will also be a meaningful boost for the ranger community across Africa. The Congress is to perform a key role in the longer term process of better supporting rangers and protected areas in the region.
