World Ranger Day

Today is World Ranger Day and the International Rhino Foundation is saluting the men, women, and K9s around the world who dedicate their lives to protecting wildlife & their habitats. Rangers can work for National Parks, private reserves or non-profit organizations, with a large variety of roles and specializations. The job can be difficult, demanding, and sometimes dangerous, but they remain committed to the cause. Without the tireless efforts of rangers in the field, rhinos – and many other species – would be in much bigger trouble than they are today, so for that, we salute rangers everywhere!  

Here are just a few of the ranger teams around the world we are lucky enough to know and how we’re able to support them, thanks to you.

From all of us at the International Rhino Foundation, a huge thank you to rangers everywhere – we are proud to know you.

If you’re looking for more ways to support rangers today, you can sign up for the Rhino Protection Unit Challenge or support anti-poaching efforts in southern Africa with a K9 ranger adoption.
