World Ranger Day
On July 31st each year our community pauses to reflect on the sacrifices made by rangers, and to celebrate the incredible work that rangers do every day to protect our planet’s natural treasures and cultural heritage. On this day, we honour Fallen Rangers.
We advocate for rangers to be respected as the critical frontline of conservation.
We celebrate our colleagues and the friendships we have made among our community. We stand as one.
Each year our World Ranger Day events and celebrations are focussed on a centralised theme. In 2023 the theme reflected the Kunming-Montreal Global Biodiversity Framework, adopted at COP15 in December 2022.
The framework highlights the need to protect 30 percent of land and waters by 2030.
We encourage you to use the #WorldRangerDay #WorldRangerDay2023 #WRD23 or #IStandWithRangers hashtag when talking about World Ranger Day on social media.
