Steve Nasir, one of WWTs real life wildlife rangers said:

I love being a wildlife ranger for WWT and helping to care for and protect our amazing wetland animals. We thought families would welcome the chance to experience what its like to be a ranger through a series of fun-packed, mini adventures, including activities that I do as part of my day to day job. Hopefully, well also inspire some of our younger visitors to become the wildlife rangers of the future, helping to create a world where healthy wetland nature thrives and enriches lives.
