Did you know 31st July is World Ranger Day? This day commemorates rangers killed or injured in the line of duty, and celebrates the work rangers do to protect the world’s natural and cultural treasures.

World Ranger Day at Langdon Hills Country ParkThe Rangers and Friends of Langdon Hills Country Park in Essex are holding a public event to celebrate World Ranger Day – making log faces, bird, bat and bug boxes with families, plus raising awareness about Rangers around the world.

As the 31st July approaches, please consider celebrating World Ranger Day in some way to raise awareness or raise money for the Thin Green Line Foundation – a charity that supports Rangers and their families in low-income countries and conflict zones. I once did an 8km mud run with obstacles  to raise money for the Thin Green Line!
