Host organisation
Carpentaria Land Council Aboriginal Corporation

Normanton rangers undertake management activities that enhance the protection of natural resources for the long term benefit of Traditional Owners and communities. Achievements include:

  • partnerships with grazing leaseholders to manage natural values and increase Traditional Owner access to traditional lands
  • management activities on behalf of Queensland Parks and Wildlife Services at Mutton Hole Wetland conservation park, including weed control, fire management and removal of old fencing
  • implementation of the Gkuthaarn and Kukatj and Kurtijar Country plans
  • culling of feral pigs from the Staaten River Catchment to preserve key wetlands and ecosystems of high biodiversity and cultural value
  • long term monitoring of migratory shorebirds and achieving the first ever large-scale documentation of waterbird breeding colonies (herons, ibises, cormorants and allies) in the Gulf of Carpentaria
  • traditional knowledge transfer through school visits and the Junior Ranger program
  • recording of flora and fauna species as part of regular patrols. Surveys focus on threatened, culturally significant, data deficient species or other species of interest as highlighted in Land and Sea Management plans.
