Life on the Frontline 2018

Given their central and indispensable role in preserving global biodiversity, one might wonder why there is not already a broad library of information on rangers addressing the many elements of this multifaceted profession.

This publication, assessing Asian and African ranger welfare perceptions, is the largest of its kind ever conducted with an aim to influence policy changes by providing a tool and evidence for use in lobbying government agencies. The report contains global data from 17 countries surveyed as well as regional data accompanied by quotes from rangers and personal stories. 

We hope this helps fill this void and can shine a far brighter light on the conditions and realities of a profession that has remained very much in the shadows to this point.
