President, International Ranger Federation; Managing Director & Founder, The Thin Green Line
Sean Willmore was an Australian Park Ranger for 11 years, and is now the founder and Managing Director of the Thin Green Line Foundation and President of the International Ranger Federation. While undertaking his work Sean has travelled to and worked with rangers in over 50 countries on six continents, where he has been ambushed, held a gunpoint, charged by elephants and avoided militias. His efforts to bring attention to the dangerous work undertaken by these warriors has won him international acclaim. Sean started The Thin Green Line Foundation using profits from his documentary, The Thin Green Line. Sean's continual inspiration is from the men and women, the park rangers worldwide, that he represents and who do this front-line work on a daily basis. In 2014, the ABC featured Sean and his work on Australian Story.
