The Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust is extending an invitation for a once-in-a-lifetime experience to celebrate World Ranger Day on Sunday 31 July 2011.
The experience includes spending the day with our Trust Ranger and an exclusive tour at a yellow-eyed penguin reserve in North Otago. See firsthand conservation activity the Trust does to help save endangered yellow-eyed penguins. Attendees will be a Ranger for the day and embark on a series of challenges including planting a native tree for future penguins to nest under, learning how to look for penguin footprints and how transponders are used to identify penguins.
This day is open to new and existing supporters of the Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust. Numbers are strictly limited and entries are on a first in, first-served basis. This is a new initiative by the Trust to acknowledge their supporters, one that will become an annual event.
World Ranger Day takes place on the 31st of July each year and celebrates Rangers across the globe. It recognises the hard work and dedication of Rangers who help to protect the world’s natural treasures and wildlife. The day is promoted by International Ranger Federation and 54 member associations of the International Ranger Federation (IRF), their partner the Thin Green Line Foundation, and by individuals who support the work of Rangers and the IRF.
