World Ranger Congress

The IRF World Ranger Congress is a triannual event that brings together rangers from all over the world and provides them the opportunity to learn new skills, share knowledge and create partnerships.

The Congress is also a forum for the creation of recommendations on issues that affect rangers, for presentation at conservation forums. The Congress provides host countries with the opportunity to raise the profile of rangers and their work.

The 9th World Ranger Congress will be held in Nepal in 2019.
