At the grassroots level, CAN supports the community to protect the forest with the concept of community patrol. CAN supports forest communities by establishing a Community Forest Ranger (CFR) which is formed in collaboration with villagers. Each member of the CFR has been trained to maintain, monitor and cooperate with law enforcement authorities to ensure that there are no threats that can damage protected forests or other high conservation value areas.
