Although our President Urs Reif could not travel personally to the annual meeting of the rangers of Landvarðafélag Íslands, he was virtually present. With a presentation on Europe’s rangers he gave an overview of their diversity, their roles and their future goals for nature conservation in Europe.
Here you can see the presentation with insights into the broad spectrum not only of the rangers and their roles, but also of the geology and thus the natural habitats. But also the role of Europe’s rangers for European environmental policy, where it stands and how rangers can advance it is part of the presentation.
One conclusion: rangers are more important than ever, with their wide range of tasks and their increasing ability to communicate – or, as Germans like Urs put it: as egg-laying wool and milk-giving pig.
