Launching of the first indigenous park guard training course in the northeast Amazon.
ACT has instituted the first indigenous park guard training course in the northeast Amazon, a program that has the support and collaboration of the International Ranger Federation. ACT also has instituted a parallel course for government and NGO staff of northern Brazil; the combined trainees’ efforts are greatly increasing the available manpower for on-the-ground protection in the northeast Amazon. Through 2009, over 120 indigenous guards and over 150 non-indigenous guards had been trained through this program.
