Indigenous Land and Sea Ranger program—ranger locations



Host organisation
Carpentaria Land Council Aboriginal Corporation

The spectacular natural environment near Burketown ranges from eucalyptus woodlands in inland areas through to lowland coastal plains, pristine wild rivers and seasonal and permanent wetlands. The Gangalidda Garawa rangers have undertaken many successful tasks such as:

  • management and control of pest animal species including feral pigs and wild horses
  • recording and protection of cultural heritage sites
  • treatment of weeds, including caltrope, prickly acacia, rubbervine and parkinsonian, through a coordinated approach with local government and land holders
  • fire management to support property protection, pest plant management and the maintenance of healthy country, through an approach incorporating western scientific techniques and traditional fire knowledge
  • sea and beach patrols, including ghost-net monitoring and removal
  • biodiversity surveys and threatened species monitoring for numerous species including crocodile, turtle, fish, bird and small mammal fauna
  • supporting traditional knowledge transfer through community and school education programs including a Junior Ranger program.
