Illustration Daily – Day 74: Park Ranger

Park rangers have existed existed in some form since medieval England. While the specific duties of the job have changed over time, park rangers have always been responsible for looking after wild lands. One park ranger, Roy Sullivan, served with the National Park Service from 1936 to 1976. Over the course of his career Roy earned an unusual world record: most lightning strikes survived. He was struck by lightning 7 times and suffered from injuries ranging from scorched eyebrows to body burns.
