Deadline extended for the IUCN WCPA International Ranger Award 2022

Nominations open until 28 February 2022

The 2nd annual IUCN WCPA International Ranger Awards will recognise the remarkable work of rangers in protected areas around the world. Hosted by the IUCN and the IUCN World Commission on Protected Areas, in collaboration with the International Ranger Federation, Re:wild, Conservation Allies, and WWF Tigers Alive Initiative, these awards are intended to improve rangers’ capabilities, raise awareness about the critical role they play in conservation efforts, and help share rangers’ unique stories and perspectives.


We are pleased to let you know that the deadline for nominations for the IUCN WCPA International Ranger Awards has been extended to 28 February 2022.


We know that logistical difficulties in these challenging times have made it difficult for many people to complete a nomination in time.


Twelve winners will each receive $10,000 USD to support the work of their associated organisation. This year two of those awards will be given specifically to rangers working to save tigers in protected areas.


Ten further highly commented awardees will receive $5,000 USD to support their associated organisation.
