Getting people passionate and motivated from a young age can help encourage them to think about the world differently. It helps people consider the connection to the world around them and how things affect the world!
An extremely important part of conservation and protecting our wildlife, is the role of wildlife area management. With management, we can make areas sustainable which can really make a difference both to wildlife and the community who live in the areas.
Conservation really does begin with the community around it, wildlife conservation is inextricably linked with the livelihoods of local communities. Without the support of local communities, it is not always possible to protect wildlife as much as we would like to.
Dogs help protect wildlife by deterring, detecting and sometimes even detaining poachers, they are definitely a ranger’s best friend! Anti-poaching teams of dogs and handlers, used alongside other protection measures, are proving extremely effective.
Field rangers risk their lives every day protecting wildlife for all of us but they train hard for this job. It is so much more than just practical training, it prepares men and women for the dangers they will face and how to work as a team to protect each other.
