Who are park rangers?

Park rangers are an essential link of the management organisation. They monitor all natural processes and all activities related to visitors and inhabitants of the park. They are responsible for enforcing the TNP Act; they inform and warn visitors and have the right to collect penalties for specific infringements. The work of a park ranger is increasingly centred around cooperation, communication and awareness-raising of the local inhabitants and park visitors. TNP rangers are actively involved in various professional, educational and research tasks conducted by the park, maintenance of infrastructure (putting-up information signs, path and trail maintenance, maintenance of rest areas), preservation of cultural landscape through mowing and supply and maintenance of the TNP mountain huts. Two-thirds of park rangers also perform the tasks of hunting guards.
