The CMA plays an active role in an international community of rangers and protected area staff. As a founding member of the International Ranger Federation and the European Ranger Federation the CMA has always been at the forefront of efforts to provide support and share expertise between Rangers around the world. Through these links, our members can feel part of a worldwide network of guardians working on the frontline to protect the world’s natural and cultural resources.
There are a range of opportunities to get involved:
- Share what being a Ranger means to you – upload your images and stories to the IRF Facebook page.
- Take part in ranger exchanges
- Attend a World Ranger Congress
- Attend a European Ranger Congress
- Attend conferences or seminars being organised by other Ranger Associations (for example there is usually and open invitation for CMA members to attend the annual conference organised by the Portuguese Ranger Associations.)
- Organise or take part in a World Ranger Day event
If you wish to discuss any of these opportunities please contact the CMA International Advisor Ian Brooker
