Report: Working conditions for rangers in Central America often dangerous; most have been threatened

Central America is home to some of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet, with its rich savannas, tropical forests and coastal dunes hosting a bounty of flora and fauna. Yet, the guardians of these places experience near-constant danger in their jobs, according to a new report conducted by Global Wildlife Conservation (GWC), Panthera, the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and other organizations.


The report’s authors analyzed the working conditions of wildlife rangers in more than 100 protected areas in Central America, interviewing 331 rangers from Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama.
