Indigenous Ranger Exchanges:
Sharing Conservation and Culture
Rangers are guardians of wildlife and wild places, possessing valuable knowledge and extensive skills.
Rangers’ best teachers are often other Rangers.
We encourage Rangers to share their insights, skills, culture and solutions with their colleagues locally and around the world. Exchanges support Rangers’ continuous professional development, strengthen morale amongst the global Ranger community and foster environmental stewardship.
The Thin Green Line Foundation’s Ranger Exchange program has enabled:
Ten Australian Female Indigenous Rangers to visit Zimbabwe’s Akashinga group of women Rangers
Nine Indigenous Australian Martu, Kimberley and Jawoyn Rangers went to Kenya to share skills, knowledge and culture with Maasai Community Rangers (featured in ‘Ranger to Ranger’ documentary)
Five Indigenous African Rangers from Malawi, Kenya and Tanzania visited Australian Indigenous Rangers in Kakadu NP.
