Monday 31 July is World Ranger Day, acknowledging the critical work of rangers on the front-line of conservation across the globe. For us, it’s a chance to celebrate the amazing things that our hard-working rangers do across Aotearoa all year round.

Live Q&A session with our rangers

To celebrate World Ranger Day we hosted a live Q&A session with our rangers at 11 am Monday 31 July.

Our livestream is finished but we’re still keen to answer your questions. Any submitted after the livestream can feature in a follow up video. Thanks for your support.

Submit a question.

Our rangers are experts in many areas, but here are some key fields to inspire your questions:

  • biodiversity
  • species (kiwi, marine mammals, insects and more!)
  • DOC's historic places
  • Predator Free 2050
  • volunteering
  • working in difficult or remote areas.
