World Ranger Day is celebrated worldwide on July 31st to commemorate Rangers killed or injured in the line of duty, and to honor Rangers around the world who bravely undertake their role on the front line, 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. In recognition of Rangers globally the International Ranger Federation (IRF) hosts a World Ranger Congress every three (3) years.
The congress gives Rangers the opportunity to learn new skills, share knowledge and create partnerships. The congress takes place in a different location each time, allowing the host countries from IRF region to raise the profile of Rangers locally and internationally. It provides the opportunity to showcase successes, to identify and address regional challenges and share knowledge and skills with colleagues from around the world.
This year the National Environmental Days Commemoration Committee celebrates and remembers the hardworking rangers from the various agencies. Click the link and hear their experiences: World Ranger Day 2020
