National park wardens and the dangers posed by the mountains

Our wardens conduct the practical aspects of nature conservation activities in the field at Tatra National Park. Being a warden is a beautiful but physically demanding and often dangerous profession. Field experience in a mountain environment, in all seasons and weather conditions, excellent knowledge of every inch of their assigned territory and the completion of mountain and avalanche safety training activities help our wardens survive all of the pitfalls of the mountains. And there are many pitfalls.

Our Tatras are called the smallest tall mountains in the world. Their miniature dimensions in no way can compete with the much larger Alps. However, we certainly do not lag behind in terms of the ruggedness of the environment. In some aspects it is even more of a challenge. The Tatras represent the first significant geographic barrier to frontal systems moving in our direction from the cold Baltic Sea and are continuously subject to often very sharp turns in the weather. All our national park wardens must be keenly aware of all these facts.
