Exciting Opportunity - Training for Wildlife Rangers in Cameroon

Exciting Opportunity - Training for Wildlife Rangers in Cameroon

The charity, Veterans for Wildlife have asked for help with finding instructors to train Wildlife Rangers in basic law enforcement, scenes of crime management, evidence management, suspect management etc.

It is fairly basic stuff that any enthusiastic retired police officer could enjoy teaching. The first course is for 2 weeks mid to end February 2019 - and this one appears to be short notice, as it seems they have been let down.

The first project is to deploy two volunteers (they would like ideally an ex-police officer and an ex RMP as many of the rangers are ex-military).

They will conduct a basic wildlife crime investigation course. These volunteers will work alongside their project manager and the Zoological Society of London in-country team to instruct the course for 60 rangers.

The cost of flights, insurance, food and accommodation in-country will be covered, so they only need someone to volunteer their time and expertise. 

Although this is the first of the Basic Law Enforcement Training, they will run this course in 7 African countries and Asia so the requirements for volunteers for this course will run for at least two years (amount of time Zoological Society of London) has secured funding for this for- from the likes of DEFRA and US Forests and Fisheries). 

Anybody interested should contact Mick Laurie (michael@arta.me.uk)

or the CEO Wes Thomson (wthomson@veterans4wildlife.org) who will be able to provide further information and documents.
