Achievements

The Bunya Peoples’ Aboriginal Corporation (BPAC) rangers work across the Bunya landscape, centred on Bonye Biar (the Bunya Mountains). Bonye Biar is the heart of the Wakka Wakka nation and there are numerous clan groups within the nation. Custodial groups associated within Bonye Biar country identify as: Wakka Wakka , Western Wakka Wakka (known as Jarowair ‘the givers’ by visiting groups), Barrungam, and Wulli Wulli-Djakunde )/Auburn Hawkwood peoples.

The BPAC rangers are expanding on their already successful work, contributing to the conservation of cultural heritage and biodiversity values across the Toowoomba, Western Downs and Burnett regions.

Rangers are undertaking work including:

  • cultural burning at Bonye Biar (Bunya Mountains), including on national park estate, to manage the health of country
  • weed management, fencing, and track maintenance at Bonye Biar (Bunya Mountains)
  • weed management and cultural burning to protect threatened Poplar Box ecological communities in the Western Downs
  • fire management for cultural site protection, and to encourage the health of local ecosystems, including open eucalypt woodlands
  • water quality monitoring at sites across the region.
