World Ranger Day
World Ranger Day is celebrated worldwide on July 31st to commemorate Rangers killed or injured in the line of duty, where it is estimated that over 1000 Rangers have been killed over the past 10 years, with a large number due to commercial poachers and armed militia groups. Whilst we honour the Rangers who have lost their lives, it is also an opportunity to celebrate the work Rangers do in protecting the planet’s natural treasures and cultural heritage.
On the 31st July we ask you to pause for a moment to reflect on the courage and sacrifice that Rangers make: by honouring Fallen Rangers and standing with Rangers who bravely undertake their role on the frontline. World Ranger Day is an International Ranger Federation initiative promoted together with its official charity arm, The Thin Green Foundation.
Hold an event at your workplace and send through images and efforts to the DEW.SARangerAssociation@sa.gov.au
Hold a morning tea at your office - make it green, have a race or a competition of some kind. This is all about raising the profile and some cash for a great cause. Get involved!
