An annual report about activities and challenges of the volunteer rangers in Moldovan national parks.
This informative material is about the people who chose to be driven by the call of nature, in order to protect it and save it from the social lack of responsibility, which harmful effects it in our day's world. Those people are directly involved in nature protection around their villages, without being employed or equipped with the necessary tools or legal frameworks to be able to realize their intention. However, there is a status, which after a series of bureaucratic steps, Inspectorate for environmental protection, titles these people as voluntary environmental inspectors and gives them an ID card, which "helps" them to continue their activity. All of them have what to say but mostly admit that the result of their work is necessary, but poorly appreciated. Therefore, strenghtening the capacities of voluntary environmental inspectors, have a great potential to prevent illegal logging, poaching, improper waste management and other forms of pollution.
