We are Ranger Campus.
We develop, implement and manage protected area law enforcement training. By working closely together with local and regional stakeholders to identify capability gaps in current law enforcement operations, we develop a bespoke development plan which is sensitive to local context and requirements.
Ranger Campus training offers a competency-based, innovative, measurable approach to ranger training.
Park rangers in developing countries have limited access to quality training. Sometimes provided with an initial training induction, most rangers work their entire careers without any refresher training or personal development. Competencies are not measured and monitored, leaving little to no indication of the level of individual, team and park performance before, during and after training periods.
Park rangers spend extended periods in their workspace, often in camps in remote areas. Conventional training requires the concentration of these rangers, often leaving a gap in ongoing operations.
Protect wildlife by strengthening law enforcement in protected areas
The development of a practical and relevant training system that supports a worldwide network of well-led, well-trained and motivated protected area law enforcement professionals, capable of ethically, lawfully, and effectively policing the world’s protected areas.
