Thanks for helping to Create Ranger Parks!

STEP 1 - INDIGENOUS RANGERS

Government contracts qualified and preferably locally-based nongovernment organisations that have a track record in delivering good land management and training. Their 10 year mission is to work with Traditional Owners to develop skilled and well-managed Indigenous ranger teams drawn from remote and regional communities, and to establish park infrastructure. This new, low-cost, public-private partnership approach to land management would be carefully introduced over time. It would start with a demonstration of 1 million hectares on properties where capacity and requests for ranger jobs are strongest, and would then extend to the remainder of the Ranger Parks network. After 10 years, or sooner if standards are met, ranger groups would assume full management responsibility. Each group is required to be accountable within state-wide development and conservation strategies set by government, in consultation with stakeholders in regional and metropolitan areas. Junior ranger programs to be established in remote and regional schools.
