Yuku Baja Muliku rangers:

  • Record and protect important cultural sites including story places and ceremonial sites, fish traps, middens, fish habitats and camp sites
  • Engage young people through a weekly Junior Ranger after-school program, Junior Ranger camps and a school holiday cadetship program
  • Manage weed incursions and fire near cultural sites
  • Maintain fencing of Poole’s lagoon to exclude feral animals
  • Monitor water flows in the Annan River
  • Patrol land and sea country for illegal camping and fishing
  • Monitor nesting marine turtles to protect them from predation
  • Undertake fire management to promote and protect the region’s biodiversity, using traditional and modern methods
  • Coordinate the Queensland Indigenous Women Rangers Network, to provide a forum for women rangers from remote and isolated communities to share experiences and connections.
