Prince William’s message for World Ranger Day

Prince William continues his passion and support for preservation. Following in the footsteps of his father and his grandfather, William continues his passion for conservation.

To commemorate World Ranger Day, The Duke of Cambridge recorded a video message.

World Ranger Day honours rangers killed or injured in the line of duty, and commemorates the work rangers do to defend the world’s natural and cultural resources.

Observed annually on the 31st of July, World Ranger Day is sponsored by the 54 member associations of the International Ranger Federation, partner the Thin Green Line Foundation, and by those who advocate the work of Rangers and the IRF.

The first World Ranger Day was observed in 2007 on the 15th anniversary of the creation of the IRF.

Founded in 1992, The International Ranger Federation (IRF) is a non-profit organization founded to raise understanding of and help to support the crucial work that the world’s park rangers do in preserving natural and cultural heritage.

The IRF has a membership of 63 ranger associations from 46 countries, on six of the seven continents.

The responsibility of the IRF is to embolden rangers by supporting national or state ranger organizations, as well as providing assistance in creating local associations in countries that currently do not have range associations.

Recently William joined former footballer David Beckham for #WhoseSideAreYouOn a new campaign for United for Wildlife, a collaboration between seven of the worlds most influential conservation organisations and the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
