North West Parks hosts World Ranger Day celebration

IMG 7961Members of the GRAA played a role in the bringing together of rangers from North West Parks and Tourism Board and Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife for a celebration of World Ranger Day on the 31st July 2014.

This year rangers from both provincial agencies met up at the Pilanesberg National Park in North West and competed in various activities against each other. Events like this are crucial in maintaining morale amongst rangers especially during a time when poaching pressure is at such a high level.

Rangers thoroughly enjoyed their day out in celebration of the work that they do and in honour of their fallen comrades around the world who had paid the ultimate sacrifice ensuring the conservation of our natural heritage.

Well done to NWPTB and EKZN Wildlife on supporting World Ranger Day! We salute you!
