The Game Rangers’ Association of Africa (GRAA) was founded in 1970 as a non-racial, non-political organisation. The Game Rangers’ Association of Africa is a properly constituted association and has been registered as a non-profit organisation.
The Game Rangers’ Association of Africa is a longstanding and well established defined community of practice. The Game Rangers’ Association of Africa provides support, networks and representation for game rangers across Africa. The Game Rangers’ Association of Africa believes that game rangers should operate with pride, and with passion for their profession whilst promoting best management practices in ensuring the conservation of our natural heritage.
The Game Rangers’ Association of Africa believes that the continued future existence of Africa’s wilderness and its wildlife is ultimately and irrevocably linked to the expertise, ethics and motivation of those tasked with the “on the ground” protection and management of this priceless asset. This involves inter alia the conservation of the natural heritage, and the promotion of sustainable utilization of natural resources, ecotourism, community involvement and environmental education.
The Ranger in Africa has many real needs, but without real support and relevant training the Ranger will fail, and Africa’s priceless natural and cultural heritage will be lost forever.
