I want to be a Park Ranger!
A park ranger is a person who duties are to protect and preserve protected parklands, forests (then called a forest ranger), wilderness areas, other natural resources and protected cultural resources. Some countries use the term "park warden" to describe this occupation.
The duties of the modern park ranger are as varied as the parks where they serve and in recent years have become more highly specialized. Regardless of the regular duties of any one job, the goal of all rangers remains to protect the park resources for future generations and to protect park visitors.
