Supporting ranger teams

Supporting ranger teams

Indigenous rangers are on the front-line of conservation and protection of the environment.  Ranger programs have wide ranging social, cultural and economic benefits.

The 10 Deserts Project aims to support Indigenous ranger teams by:

New ranger teams

Emerging Indigenous ranger teams will be supported to become advanced in land management practices. Initial priority groups identified include four in the Central Land Council area and one each in Desert Support Services, Kimberley Land Council and Alinytjara Wilurara Landscape Board areas.

A total of 11 emerging groups are proposed to be supported throughout the course of the project.

Funding provided through this project activity is for three years and will allow for the development and implementation of land management plans (referred to as healthy country plans) or equivalent. Groups will be required to collect threatened fauna species information and develop a strategy to find longer-term funding from other sources.The five-year outcomes of this activity will be an increase in established Indigenous ranger teams funded through other sources to look after another 20 million hectares of desert country and increasing maturity of emerging teams.

"In traditional times there were no borders like now – no states and territories; no native title borders and different groups drawing lines. This project removes those borders so that we can work together to keep country and people healthy. It is an ambitious project that we are keen to do." Nyaparu Rose, Nyangumarta Warrarn Elder
