Indigenous Land and Sea Ranger program—ranger locations



Host organisation
Gidarjil Development Corporation

The Gidarjil Bundaberg sea rangers work in the Port Curtis Coral Coast (PCCC) sea country, covering the area from the Burrum River, north to Agnes Water, combining traditional knowledge with western science to manage country. The rangers manage, monitor and conserve many threatened species, including dugong and marine turtles. The rangers work with the department to monitor populations of nesting turtles, including at Mon Repos, and undertake turtle research activities to collect valuable data. Rangers also undertake monitoring of different marine and coastal ecological communities, completing Mangrove Watch surveys, as well as surveys of in-shore coral reefs. Their work also includes:

  • cultural heritage surveys in the Port Curtis Coral Coast Traditional Use of Marine Resources area (TUMRA)
  • marine turtle nesting surveys and installation of protective measures for nests, in cooperation with the department’s threatened species unit
  • mangrove monitoring in locations including Burrum, Baffle and Kolan creek systems
  • seagrass monitoring in Great Sandy Marine Park
  • community marine debris clean-up events and Junior Ranger activities
  • in-shore coral surveys and water quality monitoring at 16 sites.
