Across the great diversity from vast forests and marshlands to volcanic landscapes: Rangers in Europe are true mediators between humans and nature. Visitors to protected areas, neighbouring communities and economic interests – in the densely populated region Europe is, rangers mediate a variety of human needs with nature conservation. Their most important tasks therefore include duties like environmental education, visitor management and law enforcement alongside monitoring and supporting science. All for the one big goal uniting rangers worldwide: The protection of species and natural areas.
Europe’s rangers are represented by the European Ranger Federation.
