World Ranger Day

Today is World Ranger Day!

World Ranger Day is a time to recognize and celebrate the women, men and even dogs that keep rhinos safe around the world. Protection is a key component of the International Rhino Foundation’s strategy, and “boots (or paws) on the ground” ensure rhinos thrive in the wild.

You can support rangers on this and every day through two very special ways:

Fill a Ranger’s Backpack

$300 fills a Ranger’s backpack for three weeks

This gift will help ‘Fill a Ranger’s Backpack’ and provide the essential supplies needed by Rhino Protection Units such as food, first aid kits, flashlights and other essential equipment that they carry with them for several weeks at a time to keep critically endangered Sumatran and Javan rhinos safe from poachers.

Each backpack donation comes with a digital certificate and shareables for you and your gift recipient if this is a gift.

Adopt a K9

You can help provide care for a K9 ranger and protect rhinos by symbolically adopting an anti-poaching dog, either in your own name or as a gift for a dog or rhino-loving relative or friend. 

With each adoption you’ll receive:

  • A digital certificate to print
  • A digital photo of your adopted K9 ranger to share on social media
  • A bio of your adopted K9 ranger
  • An exclusive K9 ranger adoption sticker

Thank you to all the rangers keeping wildlife safe and thank you to you for supporting these efforts. Together, we are keeping the five alive.
