The Bird Ranger

CLICK HERE TO WATCH NOW

The “bird rangers” of the Boschplaat Nature Reserve on the northern Dutch island of Terschelling, have always done much more than guard the wetlands. They’re full-fledged scientists, closely monitoring the island’s varied avian life: Rifs, Red Knots, Curlews, Godwits, and many other species. Oene de Jong, the National Forestry Service’s last professional bird ranger, takes us on a revelatory trip through the reserve that chronicles a rich history of conservation and speaks to the dire need for citizen science in the present day.

Directed and produced by Hans den Hartog. Special Guest Dutch Ambassador Henne Schuwer
