World Ranger Day Is July 31 While posing for a group photo, Ranger Jordan hears something behind him. He cautiously whispers, "Let's get this photo done and then quietly back into the vehicle, if you know what I mean. I can't 'bear' this any longer." The other two rangers get the hint, and motion for the photographer to hurry it up! 20200731 213/366 Around the globe, park rangers are on the front line in the fight to protect our natural heritage. World Ranger Day offers a chance to support their vital work, which ranges from environmental campaigning to education. The day is also an opportunity to pay tribute to rangers who have lost their lives in the line of duty. It’s estimated there are more than 100,000 reserves, parks, and protected areas around the world. World Ranger Day was created by the International Ranger Federation and was first held in 2007. World Ranger Day is celebrated to commemorate Rangers that have been injured or killed in the line of duty. It also celebrates all of the work that Rangers do around the world to protect the cultural heritage and natural treasures of the planet. What is a Ranger? A Ranger typically refers to a forest ranger or a park ranger. A Ranger is a person that is charged with preserving and protecting parklands and natural protected areas, which can also include swampland areas. Rangers will usually work with other volunteers and staff members in order to maintain bridges, stiles, gates, and footpaths. They are also the eyes and ears of the national park authority, spending most of their time out and about. They provide contact between the national park authority and between local people and visitors. They are like 'boots on the ground' that can report changes in wildlife habits, report deaths of animals, assist with clean up, and offer helpful information to tourists, hikers, and campers. Rangers need to have a lot of local knowledge of the history of the national park and the wildlife, as well as where to go and what to see. They help answer questions about the park from the public. However, their work goes a lot further than this. They also have to look out for any potential problems, and because they are dealing with live animals, it can be very risky. To become a Ranger, practical skills and the right knowledge are needed. Aside from this, a degree in environmental management, conservation, or a similar subject is typically required. Physical fitness is also important as this job often requires going that extra distance to respond to a need.
