Summary
World Ranger Day is celebrated across the world on July 31 every year to appreciate the contributions of the Forest Rangers

The event was started by the International Federation of Rangers in 2007. Rangers inspect protected areas and national parks. Their task is to protect wild animals and preserve them from the negative influence of civilization and poachers.

World Ranger Day is also an occasion to celebrate and recognise the work Rangers do to protect the world's natural heritage. On World Ranger Day, we must express our gratitude to the guardians of our natural resources for their commitment and sacrifices in protecting our environment.

The International Rangers Foundation (IRF) was established on 31 July 1992 in Peak National Park, UK, after an agreement between the Countryside Management Association (CMA), the Scottish Countryside Rangers Association (SCRA) and the US Association of National Park Rangers (ANPR). The International Rangers Foundation and The Thin Green Line Foundation celebrated the first World Ranger Day on the 15th anniversary of the founding of the International Rangers Foundation in 2007.

Filmmaker, conservationist and former Australian Park Ranger Sean Willmore has played a great role in making World Ranger Day popular worldwide. Willmore through his documentary, ‘The Thin Green Line’, shed light on the struggles of Forest Rangers. The documentary premiered in 2007 and after its success, Willmore established the Thin Green Line Foundation for helping the Forest Rangers.
