MORE than 40 people took the opportunity to celebrate our local rangers and rangers everywhere by taking part in World Ranger Day activities at Mon Repos.

Mon Repos Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service ranger in charge Cathy Gatley said yesterday provided the chance for members of the community to tour the park and ask staff plenty of questions about not only Mon Repos, but other local parks in the region as well.

"About 45 people came out and took a guided walk around the park," she said.

"We had visitors and members of the community who haven't been out here before so it was good to see them learning about the parks in our local area.

"Rangers from the different parks across our region were also able to meet and discuss the work we are all doing.

"We also raised $63 for the Thin Green Line Foundation, an organisation which helps rangers in various locations throughout the world."

Mrs Gatley said the day was also a chance for everyone to recognise rangers in other countries around the world, many who face difficult and dangerous challenges as part of their job.

"In some places being a ranger is a far more dangerous job," she said.

"We are very fortunate and thankful to have access to so many resources and enjoy the spectacular locations to work in, here in Australia."
