World Ranger Day

World Ranger Day

Park rangers around the world are fighting for our natural heritage. World Ranger Day is a great opportunity to support their important work that spans education and environmental campaigning. It is also a chance to remember rangers who died in the line of duty.

There are over 100,000 protected areas, parks, and reserves around the globe. The International Ranger Federation created World Ranger Day in 2007 and it was the first time it was held.

Many people mistakenly believe that America’s Yellowstone National Park in America is the oldest, but it is actually over 100 years old. The area around Bogd Khan Uul Mountain, which was established by the Mongolian government 1778, is the oldest national parks in the world.

There are many events being held around the globe, including guided walks or screenings of The Thin Green Line. You could organize an event if there isn’t one in your region – and help raise awareness about the important role played by the custodians for the parks around the world.

World Ranger Day commemorates Rangers who have been killed or injured in the line-of-duty. It celebrates the efforts of Rangers around the globe to preserve the natural and cultural heritage of the planet.

A ranger is typically a forest ranger, or a park ranger. A Ranger is someone who is responsible for protecting and conserving parklands and other natural protected areas.

Rangers often work alongside staff and volunteers to maintain footpaths, bridges, stiles and gates. Rangers are the eyes and ears for the national park authority and spend most of their time outdoors. They are the link between the national park authority, local residents, and visitors.

Rangers must have extensive knowledge about the history and wildlife of the park. They also need to know where to find it and how to get there. Rangers are available to answer any questions the public may have about the park. Their work extends far beyond this. It can be risky because they deal with live animals.

Practical skills and knowledge are required to become a Ranger. You will also need a degree in conservation management or environmental management.

It may seem that park rangers are at greater risk because of the wildlife and national landscape. You would be wrong, in fact! According to statistics, park rangers face greater dangers than ever. Park rangers are being attacked at an alarming rate. Park rangers are actually more likely to be attacked than border patrol officers and FBI agents!

Experts have discussed the increased risk. They believe that while there are more park visitors today, there are only 50 percent as many rangers than there were in the 1980s. While Rangers often deal with wild animals, and their safety is at stake in this sense, it is not the only danger they should be concerned about.

In 2007, the first World Ranger Day was held. This date marked the 15th anniversary since the founding of the IRF. IRF stands to represent the International Ranger Federation. This organisation was established in 1992.

It was formed when the ANPR, SCRA (Scottish Countryside Rangers Association), CMA (Countryside Management Association), which represents rangers from England and Wales, joined forces and signed a joint agreement.

The purpose of this agreement was to increase support and awareness for the important work that rangers do around the world when it comes conserving cultural or natural heritage.

There are many ways to celebrate World Ranger Day. These are just a few of the many ways you can celebrate World Ranger Day and get involved.
