Achievements

The Lama Lama rangers manage the Running Creek Nature Refuge and wider Lama Lama estate in the Port Stewart area of the Cape York Peninsula. Their country contains a high number of threatened ecological communities and species, including rainforests, birds, marine resources and coastal environments. The rangers are a specialised marine team delivering sea country and coastal estuary. Key activities include:

  • management of sea country, supporting the delivery of the Traditional Use of Marine Resource Agreement and joint management programs
  • junior ranger programs and community forums for progressing sea country management
  • protection of cultural sites on adjacent islands
  • compliance activities and visitor management with key agencies, including joint patrols of coastal and marine environments
  • collaboration with research partners in monitoring important mangrove, seagrass and coral reef ecosystems and marine species (turtles, dugong, sawfish and snub fin dolphins) to inform management decisions.
