'CONNECTING PEOPLE AND WILDLIFE'

Follow us:

Conservation

The Queen Elizabeth Parks Project supports wildlife conservation by working with Park Rangers to develop their knowledge and skills.

We encourage public donations of much needed equipment such as field guides, binoculars, cameras, GPS, laptops, torches and solar panels.

and focus on community engagement and environmental education.

We also need money to buy basics such as boots and uniforms!

Ranger led community based engagement and education activities lies at the heart of our project's success and operating ethos!

The Role of Rangers

 

Park Rangers in Uganda and the UK share the same commitment and passion for wildlife conservation.

 

Central to this passion is the belief that education and community engagement our vital components in sustainable conservation management.

 

 

Uganda Rangers risk their lives every day when they undertake patrols to protect both people and wildlife. It is an increasingly difficult and tough role which is why The Queen Elizabeth Parks Project works with these brave Rangers to ensure they are equiped and trained to the highest standards possible.

 

Without Park Rangers the wildlife you see in so many TV documentaries would not be safe!

We devise and deliver training and mentoring for Rangers.

 

We facilitate best practice exchange between Rangers and other staff

 

We support through equipment donations.

Community Engagement Workshop 2018

 

Volunteers from the Queen Elizabeth Parks Project recently led a community engagement workshop for Uganda Wildlife Authority Wardens.

 

The workshop, which was supported by the Thin Green Line Foundation, brought together experienced community engagement staff and key members of some of Uganda's most successful community projects to exchange ideas, share best practice and develop protcols for the future.

 

The workshop consisted off a series of lectures from community engagement experts, presentations from workshop participants and discussion sessions. There were also visits to local community groups where 'live' issues were explored and debated.

 

The Queen Elizabeth Parks Project will be undertaking follow evaluation work over the coming months. There will also be a series of follow up visits to key National Parks.

 

 

 

World Ranger Day

 

The 31st of July is International World Ranger Day.

It is a day to remember those who have been killed or injured whilst carrying the job of protecting wildlife and celebrate the amazing work of this dedicated group of people who truly stand on Nature's Frontline.

 

The Queen Elizabeth Parks Project too has suffered the lost of 'Ranger 'friends who have died and been

injured working for conservation so we take World Ranger Day very seriously.

 

We host events in both Uganda and the UK and encourage everyone who is interested in wildlife conservation to do so as well.

 

Through our Nature's Frontline Project (www.naturesfrontline.org) we promote the work of Rangers across the world and work closely with the International Ranger Federation and the Thin Green Line Foundation who have very kindly funded some of the training acitivities undertaken by the project
