Association of protected area professionals

IRF Membership

Regular membership of the International Ranger Federation is open to all national, state or territorial ranger associations whose members are involved in the management of the world’s protected areas. Individual rangers become members of the IRF through their association.

In countries where no ranger association exists an individual ranger, or group of rangers, may join as a Provisional Member until such time as they have established an association.

Any individual or group who supports rangers or protected areas may join as an Associate Member.

By joining the IRF, you and your association will become part of the world family of rangers; a worldwide network of frontline conservation staff for sharing knowledge, ideas, experiences and resources, for providing mutual support and for representing the voice of the ranger in the conservation debate.
