World Ranger Day 2019

31st July

A time to reflect, celebrate, stand alongside and support 

World Ranger Day is celebrated worldwide each year 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.

Let’s pause for a moment to reflect on the courage and sacrifice that Rangers make: by honouring Fallen Rangers and standing with Rangers who bravely undertake their role on the frontline. World Ranger Day is an International Ranger Federation initiative promoted together with its official charity arm, The Thin Green Foundation.

Stand with Rangers in 2019 and get involved:

  • Host an Event: Organise an event for World Ranger Day at your home, work, school, community centre, favourite place etc. and invite everyone you know. Mark the occasion with learning about the work that Rangers do and inspiring others to join the cause.
  • 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: Pause for a moment at your event or 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: At your event or on July 31st, 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.

Need some help to promote your event? We’ve created World Ranger Day promotional resources including print-ready posters, flyers and social media artwork for you to use.
