|| Training Course for New Rangers involved in the Egyptian Project
Thursday 24 June 2004, by
A training course for new rangers was held on 11 - 24 May 2004, in Sharm El Sheikh’s Training Center, Egypt. Twenty-eight candidates attended, out of which 16 were chosen to be recruited as rangers in MedWetCoast’s three protectorates; namely Zaranik, Burullus and Omayed.
The training was designed to equip future rangers with the necessary skills, both theoretical and practical. The theoretical part focused on understanding environmental legislation, conservation issues, environmental planning & management, and environmental impact assessment. The practical part included on hands training on daily routine activities, patrolling, GPS use, report writing, first aid and survival training.
Protected Area Managers and veteran Rangers conducted the training and evaluated the trainees. The 16 chosen rangers will attend a monitoring training program in Zaranik in July 2004.
