Education rangers wanted for Parks Summer Program


The award winning Parks and Wildlife Service Summer Program is now advertising for education rangers to conduct its 27th year of education ranger activities in national parks, reserves and other sites throughout the State.

The popular Summer Program reaches out to the community through public events and activities planned by the education rangers. The Parks and Wildlife Service seeks to employ highly skilled individuals who interpret the natural and cultural wonders of Tasmania.

Education rangers conduct guided walks, children's activities, slideshows, spotlight walks and, on occasion, staff portable displays. All of these activities encourage the public to interact with the education ranger and the environment. The activities range from native wildlife, cultural heritage, historical aspects of the area, sustainable use, information on visiting national parks and reserves safely and softly, and examples of Tasmania's unique natural and cultural heritage that visitors can see, hear, touch, and smell.

There are 11 full time education rangers based at various national parks and reserves including Cradle Mountain, Freycinet, and the Tasman Peninsula. As part of the summer program six part-time shearwater and penguin guides will also be employed at Ocean Beach, Lillico Beach and Bruny Neck.

Applications close on the 22nd of September. For a job application kit please visit www.jobs.tas.gov.au. For further inquiries please contact Jennifer Fry, Interpretation and Education Officer, (03) 6233 3097.
