James Slade As governments around the world come together next month to potentially commit to protecting 30% of the planet’s wild lands by 2030 (widely referred to as “30 by 30“), a new study by Re:wild and collaborators finds that there are nowhere near enough rangers and other staff to effectively manage even current protected and conserved areas.

underpaid, undersupported, undertrained, and endure inadequate working conditions. To address this issue, a coalition called the Universal Ranger Support Alliance (URSA) is working to implement an action plan to ensure that rangers have better working conditions and equipment, more opportunities for training and learning, fairer employment opportunities and conditions, and better representation, advocacy, and accountability.
