GWC works to ensure rangers are adequately trained, supported and respected across the world. They are charged with preventing biodiversity loss and ecosystem degradation. They work under a diversity of environmental conditions spanning the climates, ecosystems, and landscapes of our planet. A ranger’s work can be dangerous: they face disease, injury, extreme weather, and even death.
