Normanton rangers from the Kukatj, Gkuthaarn and Kurtijar Traditional Owner groups protect natural resources on Country in the southern gulf plains. The rangers deliver a range of on-ground activities in an area from Staaten River to Leichardt River including:

  • Implementation of the Gkuthaarn and Kukatj and Kurtijar Country plans
  • Long term monitoring of migratory shorebirds and documentation of breeding colonies of waterbird including heron, ibis and cormorant. The rangers played a central role in achieving the declaration of the internationally recognised Wernadinga and Tarrant Migratory Shorebird Flyways
  • Traditional knowledge transfer through school visits and the Junior Ranger program
  • Recording of flora and fauna species, focusing on threatened, culturally significant, data deficient species or other species of interest as highlighted in management plans
  • Turtle nest surveys along the Delta Downs coastline and protection of nests through marine debris monitoring and removal
  • Managed burns to manage weeds and protect cultural and ecological assets
  • Biosecurity surveillance including of marine pests along the coastline and plant and animal health.
