Natural Heritage Service
Here in the Pentlands, the Rangers undertake a wide variety of duties. No two days are ever the same and any one day could include outdoor conservation work, wildlife surveying, patrolling the hills, working with school and community groups, liaison with landowners and the public, writing management plans and reports, making and taking numerous phone calls, never mind emails and texts!
It would take a team comprising, an experienced naturalist, sympathetic recreationalist, far-sighted land manager, inventive interpreter, confident communicator, competent IT operator, mountain rescuer and first aider...to fill the boots of ONE Ranger!!
