Alaska Ocean Ranger Program
The Alaska Ocean Rangers Program is implemented by a group of highly trained engineer-and-environmental-watchdog hybrids, who each have expertise, and a passion, for environmental safety in Alaska. They spend months at a time riding commercial cruise vessels during the state's busy tourist season. Rangers act as independent observers who assure compliance with federal and state environmental health, sanitation and safety requirements. Through their professional oversight, the Rangers help customers meet the regulations and standards set forth by the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC).
