Where would our rhinos, elephants, tigers, gorillas, and other animals be without rangers?

Putting their lives on the line each and every day…it’s not glamorous or prestigious, it’s tough.

Sometimes it’s downright deadly.

 

But without these brave men and women, extinction would be a reality. Poaching would run rampant, chaos would ensue.

Through darkness, heat, rain, and cold, these souls persevere.

Treading carefully through danger, they protect what we all cherish.

 

So today, on World Ranger Day, we salute them.

We acknowledge their efforts and dedication; we also remember the fallen, whose families made the greatest sacrifice.

Each day we pray for your safety and from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you!

Show your appreciation by participating in our campaign:
