A young explorer is inspired

What the kids are saying

“I have already learned so much about the nature in the National Park from the Young Explorers Club. I took part a few years ago when I was on holiday. We are going back to the Hohe Tauern National Park this year for our holidays . I’m now 14 and I think I might apply for the Junior Ranger Project. I think that the Ranger’s work is really interesting, maybe I might get lucky and will be accepted …!”
