Radio Room

The Radio Room is the ‘nerve center’ controlling all Big Life ranger operations.

Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, EarthRanger, our Radio Room operators can see our full area of operation on one screen. This includes real-time locations of our ranger units, vehicles, aircraft, and tracker dogs, and allows us to control responses to incidents across the ecosystem from start to finish.
