​Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Services (PWS) is looking for its next cohort of Discovery Rangers.

The Discovery Ranger Program operates each summer and has now been running for over four decades.

PWS Interpretation and Education Officer Ingrid Albion said applications to get involved are now open.

“The role of a Discovery Ranger is to design, provide and coordinate interpretive and educational activities that enhance the visitor experience in Tasmania’s parks and reserves,” she said.

“These activities help to increase community awareness of Tasmania’s significant natural and cultural heritage.

“We encourage anyone interested in working within our spectacular National Parks and Reserves to apply.

Discovery Rangers also promote our seven ‘Leave No Trace’ principles and provide guided walks and talks at various locations.

Successful applicants are provided with training before they start out in the field during December.

While final locations are still to be determined, activities are often run within Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair, Freycinet, Mt Field, Stanley, Bruny Island and Narawntapu.
