PARKRANGER has changed its name to WILDERNESSSAR
This change from issue 5 better reflects the core readership of Wilderness SAR, Mountain & Cave Rescue teams, SAR Helicopters and marine/offshore rescue. Most of these disciplines are covered by Park Rangers but only a proportion of the teams are part of a National Park structure. WSAR deals more with lightweight equipment used in remote areas and includes rescue, search, tracking, and survival. It is a Quarterly print magazine available as a printed subscription, digital subscription or single issues/back issues. You can also buy WILDERNESSSAR/PARKRANGER from some Stockists - updated details available shortly. Click on the SUBSCRIBE button or click on 'SHOP' in the menu to see details of each issue's content.
I didn't think it was humanly possible to see this kind of quality of editorial in a magazine aimed at mountain and wilderness SAR personnel

SPOTLIGHT. Similar to a review with the same level of detail but usually a product we haven't had for long enough to be a full review or is too expensive for the manufacturer to trust us with for long.
