Thanking Our Heroes

Rangers put their lives on the line every day to protect wildlife

Rangers play a very important role in protecting some of the world’s most endangered wild spaces and iconic species like elephants, rhinos and tigers. To celebrate these heroes on World Ranger Day, WWF teamed up with hundreds of children to thank rangers for safeguarding our planet at the USA Science & Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C.

Children of all ages wrote uplifting messages on postcards that WWF is sending to rangers in Africa and Asia. They learned that you don’t need superpowers to be a superhero—rangers are the real heroes of conservation, saving a living planet with their dedication and commitment.

WWF supports rangers around the world by providing equipment, training, and technical and financial resources to fight wildlife crime.
