Brownsea Island Shore Rangers

Shore Rangers

There are a number of young adults who can’t access the great outdoors. Some face social or economic challenges, some have learning difficulties and simply don’t get the opportunity. We want to help.

Oceans to Earth have partnered with Dorset Wildlife Trust, National Trust and Jurassic Watersports to open up the great outdoors to every young adult.

Shore Rangers is a kayaking conservation group for ages 16 to 25.

Come to Brownsea by boat before kayaking around its shoreline to enjoy a range of practical marine tasks, surveys and coastal / marine workshops. 



The rangers mission

Our mission is varied… from coastal wildlife surveys & fun workshops to habitat-based tasks to get the blood pumping! Join an inspiring team & learn new skills with our rangers – all while having fun & making a difference. This is a great way to see what conservation is about and a stepping stone to nature-based careers.
