‘Ranger Croatia – 4 Rivers’ Humanitarian, Ecological and Educational Drive Begins

ZAGREB, 21 Aug, 2021 - The two-day "Ranger Croatia - 4 Rivers" humanitarian, ecological and educational campaign, aimed at pointing to Croatia's potable river waters as well as their pollution, began in Karlovac on Saturday, organised by the Croatian Federation of Nature Guardians.

The event was opened by Assistant Interior Minister Damir Trut, who said the campaign would help the children's hospital in Sisak and the animal shelter in Dumovec.

He said the fundamental task of the Civil Protection system was to protect people, material assets and the environment, and that this campaign's primary goal was to clean the environment.

Trut said members of the Civil Protection's intervention unit, the Interior Ministry's special unit, paramedics, firefighters and rangers of the Croatian Federation of Nature Guardians would demonstrate a rescue operation on the river Korana and joint action in the civil protection system.

He said the campaign was an example of how to raise public awareness, notably among children an youth, of the need to preserve the environment, waters and other natural resources.

He also underlined the importance and necessity of risk reduction and sustainable development.

The main goals of the campaign are building a smart network of nature guardians, rangers, protecting Croatia's nature and environment, improving flood protection, and cooperation between state and regional institutions in the prevention of illegal waste disposal and in nature protection.

The Ranger Croatia #ranger4river programme will be carried out throughout Croatia, starting with Karlovac County and then moving to Sisak-Moslavina County. After visiting every country, a team of experts will choose the greenest town and county.
