World Ranger Day is a global observance of Rangers across the world who died in the line of duty in the past 12 months. Many of these Rangers are from Africa, India and Southeast Asia. However, more than half of these deaths are at the hands of poachers, illegal miners and timber harvesters. Moreover, many more are killed by animals such as elephants, lions and bears. So if you see a ranger of Put-in-Bay on World Ranger Day, make sure to thank them for everything they do to keep the parks pristine! Just take a stroll in Oak Pointe State Park and see how well kept the preserves are kept. Flags from each country affected will be flown on the Park grounds.
