Indigenous Land and Sea Ranger program—ranger locations



Host organisation
South Cape York Catchments

The Laura rangers are actively engaged in sustainable natural resource management practices to enhance the rich cultural and environmental values of the region. Some of the ranger’s achievements include:

  • ongoing cultural site recording and management of the estimated 10,000 rock art sites in the Quinkan reserves
  • protection of rock art images by clearing vegetation and annual cool burns to reduce fuel load and protect galleries from the flame and smoke of hot wildfire
  • weed and feral animal management including cattle and pigs that sometimes shelter around the rock art
  • special places are protected by animal exclusion fencing which the rangers construct and maintain
  • protection of rock art sites through the use of animal exclusion fencing which the rangers construct and maintain
  • biodiversity surveys
  • water quality monitoring (in partnership with Griffith University and the Department of Environment and Science).
