Conservation Ranger Course with C.R.O.W.

18On May 5th and 6th I’ve attendend the first leg of the Conservation Ranger Course developed and hold by C.R.O.W. [Conservation Rangers Operations Worldwide]. The reasons behind the choice to take part of this lie in the personal and natural belief that Tracking Skills are not only one of the keys of success of any Antipoaching Operation as widely demonstrated  throughout the past and recent years, but also in the firm committment in the Conservation and Biodiversity’s heritage.

My goal is to apprehend about Tracking as much as possible in the most various terrain and scenario, also abroad. This skill can give a tremendous contribution in the “knock – down” of Antipoaching Operations worldwide I mean. The possibility to learn from different Instructors in areas I’m not familiar with will surely increase my awareness as well my expertise. It’s gonna be tough, no doubt about it. But I’m here to learn and fight hard!

More on C.R.O.W. [Conservation Rangers Operations Worldwide]

“Crow is an anti-poaching and conservation organization whose mission is to train rangers in the skills necessary to support, train, and supplement anti-poaching and conservation efforts worldwide.

We are located in Texas, US, and sponsored by several organizations and companies based in Europe, the US, Africa, and Australia to support private reserves, conservation areas, and national parks in the fight for conservation of animals and their habitat. With over 10-years experience in Africa (from Namibian deserts to Congo rain forests), our goal is to handle situations effectively through collaborative strategies.

CROW’s mission is to set a standard in education for rangers operating in medium\high risk environments; promoting conservation knowledge worldwide and train rangers and skilled volunteers to help in the challenge for conservation.”

Some of you may recall I’ve already collaborated with C.R.O.W. in a Joint Training between this NGO and Hull’s Tracking School. Here you can see the post related.
