Achievements

The Bama Plan will incorporate traditional land management practices such as fire management. In particular in Mona Mona but also in the Barron Gorge National Park, traditional fire management will be a critical management tool to bringing back the ecological conditions that once existed and that favour threatened species such as Northern Quoll, Lumholtz tree kangaroo and Cassowary. Rangers will undertake training in the specialised skills required to successfully implement the Bama Plan.

  • The Bulmba Rangers will undertake environmental and cultural management activities on the Mona Mona Homelands and the Barron Gorge National Park.
  • The Rangers will be completing flora and fauna biodiversity surveys to obtain a better understanding of the status of the environment when compared to previous baseline surveys.
  • The program will seek to collaborate with key partners to manage their land, including the eradication of pest species such as the Yellow Crazy Ants, the implementation of a fire management plan, undertaking water quality and fisheries surveys and the incorporation of cultural values into parks management.
  • The Rangers will work with Traditional Owners to record and map the regions cultural heritage values, names and places with the aim of reviving the Djabugay language, and work with schools to promote the natural and cultural resource management outcomes.
