The Sea Ranger Service is the world’s first global maritime ranger service. Starting in 2018 it will train youth (including long-term unemployed youth) as Sea Rangers. Navy veterans will train these youths to assist nations in the management of their Marine Protected Areas. In this way the initiative tackles youth unemployment, re-integrates veterans and protects and regenerates marine landscape.
The Sea Ranger Service is an international maritime ranger service, established as a social enterprise. The Service employs navy veterans to train youth (including long-term unemployed youth) as Sea Rangers. After their five-week bootcamp training the Sea Rangers assist nations in the management of their Marine Protected Areas, which includes fisheries management and marine landscape regeneration tasks.
Construction of the Sea Rangers’ first expedition vessel is currently underway in the Port of Rotterdam. A circular ship yard named the Dry Dock is also in development, where the next series of Sea Ranger ships will be built.

The Sea Ranger Bootcamp is a unique chance for youth aged 18-26 years to follow 20 maritime training courses during an intense 5 week bootcamp programme. Successful completion of the Sea Ranger Bootcamp gives the youth a chance to become employed as a Sea Ranger for one year, actively carrying out conservation work at sea.
The Sea Ranger Bootcamp is currently only open to youth from The Netherlands.
