Ranger Training Selection
Community Ranger Training course selection at Tsavo Trust HQ
At the end of 2015 a large group of excited men from Kamungi and Ngiluni villages arrived at Tsavo Trust HQ to undergo a series of initiative, stamina and physical tasks in order to be chosen for the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) Community Ranger Training course at the KWS Law Enforcement Academy Manyani.
Twelve of the finest were carefully selected and January 2016 marked an important milestone for these young men whom arrived at the Academy to begin the vigorous and demanding three-month course.
Upon their return, they will be deployed within their communities, where they will play a crucial role from human/wildlife conflict issues, patrolling in search of illegal wildlife related activities and take part in environmental education programs.
