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.

- Post on Social Media: At your event or on July 31st, 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 hashtags on the sign.
Honour Fallen Rangers:
