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.
Why not read our Insider Guides to find out what inspires these passionate people, and maybe pick up a tip or two about your favourite park?
