They serve under various titles—rangers, forest guards, game scouts and field enforcement officers—but share a common purpose: to protect the world’s natural and cultural treasures.
Rangers work tirelessly to watch over some of the most endangered wildlife on the planet, like tigers, elephants and rhinos. Many of these animals are among the most widely targeted by poachers for the illegal wildlife trade, and rangers regularly pay with their lives while trying to keep them safe.
