In 2014, the International Rangers Federation (IRF) and The Thin Green Line Foundation (TGLF) committed to actively training and equipping wildlife Rangers on the frontline of conservation in National Parks, Protected Areas, and Community Conservation Zones in nine African countries. The commitment focuses on the training of Government and Community Rangers in advanced anti-poaching techniques as well as in leadership skills and professional development. Through the "Train the Trainers" program, TGLF will ensure the consistency and sustainability of ranger training over time. They will also provide key equipment to the Rangers undertaking anti-poaching work, including water filtration, backpacks, mosquito nets, and smartphones. This commitment will also expand TGLF's Widow Support Program, focusing on assisting the family members of rangers killed on patrol with educational, health, and employment needs. This commitment is designed to concentrate on the immediate solution of anti-poaching in the field to sustain Ranger and wildlife survival.
