Thank Rangers Who Protect Wild Animals and Places

postcards to rangers

Onam in India, the Homowo Yam Festival in Ghana, Thanksgiving in the United States—harvest celebrations are fairly universal. For many people, this season of gratitude goes far beyond sustenance, encompassing appreciation for friends, family, happiness and health.

So why not add a new twist to your gratitude list this year? Send a postcard thanking a wildlife ranger, one of the men and women who work so tirelessly on the front lines of conservation to protect wildlife and wild places.

Rangers are the first line of defense against the escalating poaching and wildlife crime crisis. Often unarmed and ill-equipped, these brave men and women patrol some of the toughest places on Earth—from dense forests to remote ocean waves—to keep animals such as elephants, tigers, gorillas, turtles and rhinos safe.
