#SaluteOurRangers - SANParks Forums video, a group effort!

Unread post by DinkyBird » Fri Jul 22, 2016 6:36 pm

Around the world, park rangers are on the front line in the fight to protect our natural heritage. World Ranger Day offers a chance to support their vital work, which ranges from environmental campaigning to education. The day is also an opportunity to pay tribute to rangers who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
This is the day where we salute their commitment and dedication in protecting and conserving wild flora and fauna.

Building up to the 31st of July, SANParks would like to encourage our fans to send in their videos (not more than a 1 minute), thanking the rangers for all the extraordinary work they do to ensure that the integrity of our beautiful parks remains intact, and that our wildlife specifically is safe. Please use the ‪#‎SaluteOurRangers‬ hashtag in your post. The videos will be collected and then sent to the SANParks Rangers on the day of celebration.

Dear 'mites

Shall we put together a video from us all?

Please add your short one line message to the rangers; and/or a pic, to this topic. We will put these together to make a video, adding the text over the pics, some background music, with a BIG salute from the SANParks Forum members!

We might need some selfies saluting, pics of rhino and endangered species, rangers .... let your imaginations run free!

Please add your pic/comment here by 26 July.

I'm struggling with computer issues but will try and post something here. I dont have an editing program at the moment and not enough disc space to download. There is one line on this pic I would have liked to change for the purposes of this video and if you think it inappropriate (because the original was not directed at the rangers), please dont use the pic!

Message: Thanks guys, from the bottom of my heart, for what you do. You rock!

Well done to all you guys. Just amazing effort.! SALUTE!
At the end of it all you don't want to go into the grave peacefully and quietly in well preserved body... You want to go sort off skidding in sideways, full of bruises and scratches saying: "Man what a ride!!!"
