Helping to protect biodiversity through exploration and participation: this is the aim of Young Ranger, the new programme of the LIFE WolfAlps EU project aimed at young people of all ages that will be launched in spring 2022.

A project which focuses on young explorers with the aim of improving their knowledge and awareness, actively engaging them in the protection of biodiversity today and tomorrow.

“Look deep into nature and you will understand everything better”, said the famous Albert Einstein. The Young Ranger programme is an opportunity to learn about biodiversity and to actively observe the nature that surrounds us, to comprehend its complexity and to help preserve it. The programme will take the aspiring Young Rangers through 38 parks and museums in France, Italy and Slovenia, unveiling the fascinating peculiarities of the different territories and the variety of points of view on the environment and the wolf.

The Young Ranger activity booklet, dedicated to this charismatic species, and the world that surrounds it, will be available for young visitors at the visitor centres of the parks and museums of the Network. Games, insights and beautiful illustrations present the many points of view of those affected by the return of the wolf, as well as the critical issues to the coexistence with human activities.

But that’s not all! Once the booklets are filled in, the youngsters will receive their Young Ranger badge and a stamp on their Young Ranger Pass at the visitor centre! 

By collecting all the stamps from the parks and museums that are part of the Network, you will become a true Champion for Biodiversity!

Don’t miss the journey, Follow us!
