World Ranger Day celebrates the contributions and sacrifice made by park rangers to protect national parks, wildlife and natural heritage for the benefit of all mankind.
Nearly 1,000 rangers have lost their lives on the frontlines of global conservation in gun battles with poachers and organized crime groups over the past ten years.
Global Conservation is supporting rangers in our projects from Guatemala to Thailand and Indonesia including life insurance, communications systems, trauma kits, surveillance and firepower to ensure rangers patrols are safer and better prepared.
It is important that rangers’ work is recognized and valued by society and our support improves the motivation and status of park rangers risking their lives on the frontline.
Park Rangers are increasingly coming under lethal threat due to heavily armed wildlife poachers, miners and illegal loggers in our national parks.
Global Conservation-sponsored rangers from Mirador National Park recently completed the World Ranger Congress in Colorado and are now back in Guatemala protecting the heart of the Maya Biosphere from illegal logging, poaching, land clearing and looting of archaeological sites.
Around the globe, park rangers are on the front line in the fight to protect our natural world heritage. Over 1,000 rangers have been killed in gun battles with poachers and organized crime groups over the past ten years.
