Celebrate our rangers this World Ranger Day

Get to know the people behind South Australia’s parks and natural spaces this World Ranger Day.

World Ranger Day this Tuesday 31 July provides us with the opportunity to celebrate the great work rangers do to protect our natural environment.

It also commemorates rangers around the world who are killed or injured in the line of duty.

Check out the profiles of some of the rangers – past and present – who have worked tirelessly to make South Australia’s parks and natural spaces enjoyable for all.
