Everyday, rangers risk their lives and make great sacrifices to protect nature, wildlife, and people. Iconic species like tigers, snow leopards and elephants would have long vanished from the wild if it wasn’t for the perseverance of our rangers. To honor these real-life heroes on World Ranger Day 2021, we would like to offer them words of gratitude and respect from the voices of the children. 


Therefore, WWF Bhutan invites Bhutanese children to participate in a poetry competition with the theme, ‘An Ode to Our Rangers’
