The U.S. Government, in partnership with the Government of Malawi and conservation NGO African Parks, supported Basic Field Ranger Training for 34 Malawian Ranger recruits. The January 22 – March 17, 2018 course took place in Liwonde, Malawi and equipped Ranger recruits with skills related to patrol formation, firearms handling, bush survival skills, and law enforcement ethics. The training also familiarized the recruits with wildlife and conservation related laws. The graduates will now assist the Government of Malawi and African Parks to protect and conserve Malawi’s wildlife. The United States proudly supports Malawi’s efforts to protect its wildlife resources and combat illegal poaching and trafficking.
