Celebrated worldwide on the 31st of July, World Ranger Day honours the work Rangers do to protect the planet's natural treasures and cultural heritage.

This year, the CCPOA and Intaka Island would like to take the opportunity to not only thank our Rangers and Field Guides but all who play a role in preserving the wetlands and canals.

Our Intaka Island Field Rangers, who are the first friendly faces you see when visiting Intaka Island. They are involved in running our school's educational programs, providing guided tours to visitors as well, and the general upkeep and maintenance of the Eco-Centre which includes looking after our educational and sustainable exhibits and other administrative duties.

Our Nature Conservation and Nursery Teams who perform a lot of the "behind the scenes work" and are in charge of infrastructure maintenance on the Island, including maintaining the footpaths, the gardens, nursery work as well as performing data collection, monitoring and of animal management.

Our Water Quality team, which you will often see on the canals and within the cells on Intaka Island managing the harvesting of aquatic weed and maintenance of canal banks.
