Summer learning Journey Activity 2: The Secretive Skink [4 points]

On your blog list three pros (good things) and three cons (bad things) about working as a DOC ranger. At the bottom of your post, tell us whether you would like to be a DOC Ranger or not.

The good things of being a DOC
  • The first good thing about being a DOC is because you can look after animals.
  • Another good thing about being a DOC is you can be able to have access to one of the most rare animal in New Zealand.
  • The third, your helping the animal population of New Zealand.

The Bad things of being a DOC

  • The first you have to stay on an island and you can't see family as much anymore
  • The second your not allowed to give anyone any access to the rare animal.
  • The third you might feed it the wrong thing and there might be a natural disaster that wipes all the animals out and you can't do anything to help them.


  1. Wow! I really love how you took your reasons and put them one your blog. I am also doing the SLJ so why don't you hop over on my blog.

  3. Kia ora Fasi,

    You have done a fantastic job on this activity! You have thought well about the pros and cons of working as a Department of Conservation (DOC) ranger, I'm impressed! You're right, it would be quite special to be able to work with the rarest animals in New Zealand. Yes, I would imagine you could get quite lonely and homesick while working as a DOC ranger.

    Do you think you would like to be a DOC ranger? Why or why not?

    I look forward to hearing back from you soon!
