Today is #WorldRangerDay. Wildlife rangers will be responsible for protecting 30% of the planet by 2030. That’s a big job, so it’s not surprising that rangers do a lot more than prevent poaching. They guide visitors. They fight fires. They are often the first to identify environmental problems. Most importantly, they help make conservation happen. With so many responsibilities, it’s also not surprising that there is no one type of ranger. Rangers are men, women, Indigenous People, volunteers, NGO workers, government staff and landowners. Let’s honor rangers today and beyond with the International Ranger Federation, and help to make sure they have the resources they need for every aspect of their jobs - because they protect us all: humans, animals and wild places.
