SARA's support at the TGLF stall at WOMAD in 2018 was the most successful yet. Despite the awkward location that our stall was positioned we were able to raise $11,000 for the Thin Green Line Foundation. In future years SARA will take on more of a coordination role at the Thin Green Line stand at WOMAD, so more volunteers will be required to assist.

World Ranger Day
31st July

World Ranger Day is celebrated worldwide on July 31st to commemorate Rangers killed or injured in the line of duty and to celebrate the work Rangers do to protect the planet’s natural treasures and cultural heritage.

Let’s 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.

Annual Ranger Migration

The Committee and Regional Representatives of the South Australian Ranger Association migrate once a year. This migration is a wonderful time to get back in touch with our colleagues across the state and learn from each other.

Council of Australian Rangers Associations Conference

The Council of Australian Ranger Associations (CARA) comprises representation from each state and territory associations in Australia which are themselves directly affiliated with the IRF. CARA is a professional body that represents and supports Rangers and other professional officers involved in the conservation and management of our natural and cultural resources. CARA represents not just only rangers, but all people that work within and supportive roles of staff of government and private conservation organisations.


In 2017 the Council of Australian Ranger Associations (CARA) Forum was held in Katherine, Northern Territory. Over 80 delegates from around the country attended the three day event and were provided the opportunity to immerse themselves in the culture, natural landscape and issues impacting rangers in the Northern Territory as well as share and promote the work occurring in their parks and states. A wide range of topics were covered including crocodile community engagement and management, co-management with traditional owners, and junior ranger programs. Below are listed the SARA delegates who have attended CARA Forums in the past.

World Ranger Congress

The International Ranger Federation (IRF) raises awareness of and supports park rangers worldwide in conserving our natural and cultural heritage. Every three years, the IRF brings together rangers from around the globe to renew their commitment to preserving and protecting the world’s natural and cultural resources.

These international gatherings provide rangers and protected area professionals the opportunity to learn new skills, share knowledge, create lasting partnerships, and be inspired by their colleagues. Delegates also learn how to increase public awareness about how these special places contribute to a healthy society and sustainable economies.
