The position of Forest Ranger requires the employee to be capable of accomplishing many tasks. In The Story of a Forest Ranger the viewer gets to follow the ranger as he demonstrates the many different challenges and obligations that are part of forest ranger requirements. To earn the distinguished position of a Forest Ranger one must have proper education through college studies and practical application. Beyond these things is a deep thirst for knowledge of the outdoors and wild animals, and a curiosity about the planet. These characteristics help make a good forest ranger. But the film also examines more than these basic skills, because being a forest ranger involves many activities. Organizing and supervising the logging of trees is part of the position that helps to maintain a healthy forest. Another position is the management of the water system to ensure that plants and animals are well provided for and to preserve the land so that erosion does not occur. Timber management is a difficult task that sometimes requires riding on horseback to reach remote locations. Forest rangers are defenders of wildlife, and as such must make wildlife conservation and nature care a priority. Being a forest ranger truly is one of the best wildlife careers. Another aspect of being a forest ranger is to help prevent and fight forest fires. Forest fires can be very devastating and can temporarily ruin the ecosystem of the forest. To ensure that these are prevented, Forest Rangers must educate visitors on forest fire prevention and fire safety in the woods. If a forest fire does occur it is their job to act quickly to minimize the damage that may occur. As preservationists, forest rangers will use fire safety equipment to ensure a well protected forest. While much of the life of the forest ranger is spent outdoors it requires many skills. A forest ranger is part teacher, part preservationist, and also part business person. It is not a job for everyone, but a forest ranger career can be a rewarding occupation for a person who adores nature and approaches outdoor care with competence and knowledge.
