Anindilyakwa Land & Sea Rangers will benefit from the Territory Government’s promise to
invest nearly $12 million to continue the Aboriginal ranger program.
The funding will ensure about 1000 rangers from 47 ranger groups throughout the Territory are
further supported with jobs on-country, and continued access to resources to protect the NT’s
pristine environments and wildlife.
Parks and Rangers Minister Selena Uibo says: “Our Aboriginal rangers do a vital job protecting
our unique environments to ensure they can be enjoyed by generations to come.
“These grants have been extremely well received by our ranger groups – they have bolstered
resources and helped get conservation projects off the ground.
“They are also providing the opportunity for new projects for Aboriginal Territorians on-country
that support land management and conservation jobs.”
