Indigenous protected areas are best protected by Indigenous rangers as their familiarity with and historical knowledge of those areas is deeper and more extensive than non-Indigenous rangers. Cultural connection, along with practical knowledge and skills with those places cannot be taught, only known at a superficial level by non indigenous rangers. That deeper connection enriches Indigenous rangers dedication and understanding and feeds every decision and action they undertake in fulfilling their responsibilities to those places.
