The Scottish Countryside Rangers Association is the professional body working with rangers and environmental workers throughout Scotland. We provide training and networking opportunities. We have many international links and hosted the International Rangers Federation in Stirling in 2006, to which we sponsored several rangers from around the world,including Malawi. ,,Since then we have maintained contact with rangers in the Department of National Parks and Wildlife in Lilongwe as well as private wildlife conservation organisations and NGO's. We regularly gather up ranger equipment and ship it out to Malawi.,,The equipment we seek to send is essential kit for the protection of rangers and scouts as often they have no equipment. It includes binoculars, boots and uniforms, and sleeping bags and tents for longer anti-poaching patrols. Rangers and scouts risk their lives on these patrols and any equipment we can supply will help their efforts to protect local wildlife.,,
