  • Meet the ranger: Rangers have to protect native plants and animals, look after cultural sites, help visitors, and much more. There's a lot to do when you're looking after a park.
  • Meet the field officer : Field officers do lots of different jobs - from building picnic tables to fighting fires.
  • Meet the Aboriginal sites officer: Aboriginal sites officers don't just look after rock paintings and artefacts - they also teach people about Aboriginal culture.
  • Meet the researcher: There are many things to research in national parks - from native wildlife to history and culture.
  • Meet the information officer: When you visit a national park, it's a good idea to go to the park visitor centre and chat to an information officer. They can tell you where to go and what to see.
