Chunga Ranger Training School

 Working alongside locally based NGO, Game Rangers International (GRI), the GRAA supports Chunga Training School, which is the main facility for the provision of basic and specialist ranger training to the Department of National Parks and Wildlife in Zambia. 

The first phase of this project began in 2015 and saw the upgrade and development of the infrastructure at Chunga to a suitable standard. Rangers are now enjoying running water, solar powered lights and secure storage of materials whilst on site.

A special thanks must go to the Thin Green Line Foundation (TGLF) for its financial support for this project. Also, thanks to the WWF's Russell E. Train Education for Nature Program, the GRAA was able to launch a Counter Insurgency Tracker Training course at the newly revamped school for 12 rangers in 2016. In 2017, GRAA sourced funding from TGLF to develop training capacity at Chunga by facilitating a 'Train the Trainer' curriculum at the Southern African Wildlife College where 7 trainers spent time developing their skills over a period of 4 weeks.

The GRAA looks forward to continue its work at Chunga, developing and upskilling Zambia's rangers.
