The depth of our gratitude is endless, as these people put it all on the line, affording the rest of us more time to rack our brains to come up with a solution. We are indebted to them all for their perseverance and very existence, as without them we would never fully possess our sanity, let alone be able to sleep. To know they are there, on guard, watching, listening; it is a comfort like no other.
Thank you for your hearts, your strength. KNOW we stand beside you during the patrols, in the silence of the night, in the heat of the forest, during times of fear, fatigue, and despair. You are each an inspiration, a hero.
Thank you for everything you do. You are a blessing to the animals. May God keep you safe. -Gerri

I visited South Africa in August 2014 and it changed me forever. I was incredibly moved by the amazing creatures who live in the protected areas. I became overwhelmed by the amount of nature we have lost on this planet. And it saddened me greatly. It still does. I don’t know how to thank you adequately for working to protect what’s left. I know you put your lives on the line every day to protect animals from harm. Please know that although I’ve never met you, I think of you all often, and I wish you well. I live in the state of Kentucky, in the USA. From my small town I’m working to raise money for night vision equipment for rangers. My group, the Try Anything Rhino Project, has already purchased one piece of equipment that has arrived in South Africa in the last week or two. I’m now working to raise funds to buy more. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for what you do. You are all heroes. I appreciate you more than you’ll ever know!! -Marla Knight-Dutille
TO ALL OF YOU WHO DO THIS HARD WORK- THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!! I read about as much as I can about your efforts, which are saving so many animals lives—at the same time, you have to deal with criminals who don’t care about anything but greed—so I just say a huge THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR EFFORTS TO HELP KEEP ALLTHE MAGNIFICENT CREATURES ALIVE—I PERSONALLY AM EXTREMELY GRATEFUL FOR ALL YOUR EFFORTS—Louise Smith
Rangers, I have the privilege of witnessing daily on WildEarth’s wildsafarilive.com, the love and care guides & rangers have for your wildlife. I am blessed that I am able to witness ellies, lions, leopards, etc. thanks to the hard work and dedication you all put into your daily lives. If it wasn’t for you, WE would have nothing to see and admire. 🙂 Keep up the great work so WE can continue to be in awe. WE are rooting for you, and praying for your safety and success. Words cannot express enough, but I can say THANK YOU! –Blessings, Vicky Sanders, New Mexico USA
To all the Rangers in the World, You’re true guardians of the Earth and the vital eco-systems we need to desperately protect. I’m heart broken for the tragedy in your work but we must all fight for your triumphs. -Thank you, Paula
It is not money, goodwill or millions of people who care so much about wildlife, that actually saves it. That all helps, tremendously; but it is the rangers who actually save our animals. I have never had so much respect for anyone. Thank you! -Jenna Grant
Thank you for all you do to protect these beautiful creatures. Full of admiration for your bravery and dedication x Best wishes-Amy G
On World Ranger Day my message of thanks goes to all those men and women who are prepared to lay their lives for the protection of their country’s wildlife heritage. This is often done enduring hardships and difficult conditions , for disproportionately low salaries. Their dedication is often overshadowed by other figures (‘the experts’) who provide technical and scientific knowledge for Nature conservation. Governments , in any country, should make it a priority to provide better conditions for these men and women, the game rangers: not only for the purpose of incentivizing an increasingly important profession, but also to express a nation’s gratitude for their sacrifice. Rangers are aware of the high risks they face , especially where poaching is conducted with extreme determination and violence, and their choice of enforcing the law makes their work even more commendable. Thank you, for you are today’s heroes for tomorrow’s enjoyment of Nature by our children! –Silvana Olivo, France

Thanks so much for all you do to protect our planet! This World Ranger Day, and every day, let us never forget those who have given their lives to protect our wildlife and environment from poachers, polluters, and others intent on causing harm.
