The important role of rangers for biodiversity is increasingly being recognised: Also by some of the more than 60 international scientists who have compiled their research findings for the ‘10 Must Knows from Biodiversity Science’. We spoke to two of them about the key action points and how rangers not only communicate information, but also connect people to nature on a deeper level through emotions.

April also brought a new ‘Two Rangers, Two Projects’: one ranger is looking after water buffalo, protecting wetlands and winning the hearts of visitors, while the other is researching the motives behind poaching in order to better protect wildlife from this crime. Step by step, we want to use this format to show the enormous range of contributions that rangers make to preserving a planet worth living on. Plus: A letter from the Greifensee rangers in Switzerland with their profile, a review of our rewilding training and a look ahead to our next training on the use of the Spatial Monitoring and Reporting Tool (SMART).
