Rangers face an enormous task to protect our planet, and yet the ranger workforce is under-prepared, under-resourced and under-valued. URSA recognises the scale of the challenge facing our rangers globally, and understands that the ranger workforce requires the strength of a coordinated support base. URSA advocates for rangers, develops resources and tools for the ranger workforce, drives equality and equity in the ranger workforce, improves ranger working conditions and welfare, while at the same time building trusting relationships with communities and ensuring the responsible conduct of rangers.
Achieving this ambitious Vision needs a strategic approach. URSA’s Action Plan outlines five themes, allowing rangers to perform their roles effectively and responsibly.
“We are monitoring the health and
behaviour of wild animals;
someone should do the same for us.”
