World Ranger Day

World Ranger Day

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. World Ranger Day is an International Ranger Federation initiative promoted together with its official charity arm, The Thin Green Foundation.

Stand with Rangers and get involved:

  • Post on Social Media: Our International Co-ordinator, Chloe Bradbrooke, has already put some great suggestions on our facebook pages, so do get involved.  There are numerous other ways to mark the day, but do remember on  July 31st to post pictures of yourself, friends and colleagues holding the World Ranger Day sign and pay tribute to our frontline heroes. Share these pictures with the IRF and TTGLF social media pages using the hashtag #WorldRangerDay.

Honour Fallen Rangers:

  • Pause for a moment on July 31st to honour those Rangers who have made the ultimate sacrifice protecting our planet’s natural treasures and cultural heritage.
  • Raise funds for Ranger projects: Raise funds for the critical work that Rangers do. Raising this funding will equip and train Rangers in the field as well as support the families of Fallen Rangers.
