WWF holiday adoption gift guide: Introducing the wildlife ranger hero doll!

This holiday season, WWF is introducing six new species, as well as three frontline hero dolls for you to adopt and take home.

Frontline workers such as marine biologists, wildlife rangers and polar researchers are important in order to support WWF’s conservation efforts around the world. Let’s learn more about the work of a wildlife ranger.

A day in the life of a wildlife ranger could include:

  • Protecting endangered species like tigers, elephants and rhinos from poachers.
  • Safeguarding parklands and helping people manage natural resources.
  • Patrolling park boundaries to keep poachers at bay.

Wildlife Rangers are a key part of WWF efforts:

  • Wildlife rangers help safeguard endangered species and fight wildlife crime.
  • These men and women work hard on the frontlines to protect some of the most threatened species in the world.
  • International illegal wildlife trade is threatening species like tigers, elephants and rhinos. Wildlife rangers risk their lives every day to protect nature and are truly the unsung heroes of conservation.
