Chumbe Island Coral Park (CHICOP) would like to announce details for the 1st Ranger symposium which will be held on 24.03.2022 on Chumbe Island, Zanzibar.
The theme of this full day symposium is “Tuhifadhi pamoja” and will bring together rangers from marine managed areas in Unguja with the aim to raise the professional profile of Rangers as essential frontline conservation workers and to open a forum of exchange and new collaborative solutions to emerging challenges.
The symposium will:
− give insights into lessons learnt from Chumbe Island as a privately managed marine protected area
− introduce Rangers to the International Ranger Federation (IRF) which is the official body representing rangers around the world;
− share documents from their online available Ranger Toolkit which are relevant to rangers and the work that they do;
− give voice to Rangers and facilitate peer to peer knowledge transfer
− discuss the role of women and youth in the ranger profession
− spotlight important challenges and support Ranger-led collaboration on solutions via the creation of a networking forum
Managers and community leaders from marine managed areas in Unguja are invited to appoint up to two Rangers from their respective areas to participate in this event by emailing (email@example.com) or sending the registration form below to the Chumbe Head Office before Monday, 21.03.22.

The Biodiversity and Protected Areas Management (BIOPAMA) programme aims to improve the long-term conservation and sustainable use of natural resources in African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries, in protected areas and surrounding communities. It is an initiative of the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States financed by the European Union’s 11th European Development Fund (EDF), jointly implemented by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC). Building on the first five years of activities financed by the 10th EDF (2012-2017), BIOPAMA’s second phase provides tools for data and information management, services for improving the knowledge and capacity for protected area planning and decision making, and funding opportunities for specific site-based actions. www.biopama.org
