WILDchild: Becoming a Ranger

A series for the young and young at heart


For every future planet manager or adult who dreamt of becoming a ranger when they were young, our WILDchild: Becoming a Ranger series offers a sneak peek into our guides’ toolkit.

We will take what you have learnt from our recorded episodes (aired every Saturday on our social media channels) and make those skills become a reality by taking you through a mission that you can do at home. This is also the perfect opportunity to get your questions on the episode answered.

The class is limited to 20 children and in English, so sign-up as soon as you can.

How to participate?

Book your seat.

We will then send you an email with a personal link that will explain how to connect with your guide on the date of your booking. We’ll also ask you a few questions to help your ranger focus on your areas of interest.

You’ll connect with your guide through video-conferencing software called Zoom. We recommend you download Zoom onto your desktop, laptop, phone or tablet, and test it before your booking.

You will need to have a stable internet connection – Zoom recommends a connection speed of 2mbps up/down.
