Recruitment campaign launched for new Tasmanian Wilderness Rangers
A recruitment campaign has been launched by the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service to employ rangers who will provide education and advice to walkers in some of the most remote multi-day walks within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area this summer.
The Wilderness Rangers, previously known as Track Rangers, will play an important role in keeping the walking community safe as well as enriching the overall visitor experience.
The rangers will be based in remote locations throughout the TWWHA, including Lake Rhona and the Walls of Jerusalem, along with soon-to-be-reopened overnight walking tracks at Mt Anne Circuit, Eastern Arthurs, and Western Arthurs.
The Wilderness Ranger program has been expanded this year to enhance walker safety and knowledge, particularly around Leave No Trace principles.
Additionally, the rangers will share the natural and cultural heritage values of these irreplaceable wilderness areas with walkers.
They will also help visitors understand why a voluntary overnight walker registration system is now in place to protect these fragile remote bushwalking environments.
The rangers will be deployed on more walks and for longer during the peak walking season to ensure full coverage on these remote walks.
In recent years, rangers have identified that some walkers are unaware of Leave No Trace principles, which can lead to impacts on vegetation, new campsites being formed, trail braiding (which creates a path next to a designated trail due to people walking off track) and inappropriate toileting.
With unprecedented demand for Tasmania’s National Parks and Reserves, even during COVID-19, the team of Wilderness Rangers will be out in the field and ready to greet and assist walkers during the peak walking season from December 2021 to April 2022.
