Die International Rangers Federation (IRF) het Internasionale Dag vir Veldwagters vir die eerste keer in 2007 herdenk. Die IRF het 54 lede-organisasies waaronder die Game Rangers Association of Africa (GRAA) wat veldwagters in Suid-Afrika ondersteun en verteenwoordig.
Focus on Game Rangers
World Ranger Day is marked annually on 31 July to commemorate rangers all over the world who have died in the course of their duties, and who risk their lives daily as they work at the forefront of conservation. In South Africa, game rangers stand up to poachers almost daily as they battle to end the decimation of wildlife species, particularly the poaching of rhino.
The commemoration of rangers is the brainchild of the International Rangers Federation (IRF). The IRF has 54 member associations and includes the Game Rangers’ Association of Africa (GRAA) that provides support, networks and representation for game rangers across Africa.
