World Ranger Day: A celebration of passion, courage and care is a Melbourne Conversations dedicated to rangers worldwide. 

While local park rangers don’t risk being murdered each day unlike their counterparts in other countries, Melbourne-based organisation, The Thin Green Line Foundation, quietly leads the world in the challenge to protect nature’s protectors. 

Hear the astonishing story of Sean Willmore, local ranger and Foundation founder turned passionate international activist and supporter of the world’s green guardians of the wild, and ask yourself ‘how far would you go to follow your passion? Is it worth risking your life?’

Panel:
Sean Willmore – Park Ranger and Founder of Thin Green Line
Dr Bill Jackson – Chief Executive Officer, Parks Victoria
Danielle Thomas – Park Rangers Coordinator, City of Melbourne
MC Brian Nankervis – Writer, performer and producer


This is an all ages, no bookings needed event, developed in collaboration with The Thin Green Line Foundation and supported by Future Leaders and Federation Square.
