Rangers are lacking in proper training, appropriate working conditions, adequate pay and benefits, government and legal support, and recognition for their heroic efforts. Only 50% of rangers report that they have adequate supplies or uniforms. Nearly 50% do not have access to clean drinking water. In the last 10 years 1,175 rangers have died on the job. Rangers earn less than other frontline workers like police officers and firefighters. Yet we ask them to work tirelessly for our planet.
