The duties of the modern park ranger are as varied and diverse as the parks where they serve and in recent years have become more highly specialized. Regardless of the regular duties of any one discipline, the goal of all rangers remains to protect the park resources for future generations and to protect park visitors. This goal is accomplished by the professionalism and sometimes overlapping of the different divisions.

A park ranger is a person entrusted with protecting and preserving parklands – national, state, provincial, or local parks. "Parks" may be broadly defined by some systems in this context, and include protected culturally or historically important built environments, and is not limited to the natural environment.
For example, park rangers at beaches may be required to safeguard visitors and enforce policies and regulations regarding the safe use of the beaches, while park rangers working at heritage areas may be responsible for patrolling the back country and delivering interpretive talks to tourists, community and school groups.

For example, an interpretive ranger may perform a law enforcement role by explaining special park regulations to visitors and encouraging them to be proper stewards of natural and cultural history.

I Joined the Parkranger for a walk up to the old Navarino Castle. I was amazed about the views. no tickets, no fences, pure freedom.
I love Gialova, the bay, the lagoon, the birds and the freedom to experience nature.
Marlene told me, once you come to Gialova, you will always come back. She's right.
The village of Pylos, the restaurants at Gialova, Divari Beach, Voidokilia was a dream, i am in love with ya, G I A Lova.
For everyone that loves nature and experience the warmth of the Greek peaple, for those who love to eat good food, visit Gialova.
I want to thank you for making my holiday the best of the best. My kindest greetings to Sjoerd, Marlene, Hanneke and Hetty.
