Funding announced for the first round of the Aboriginal Ranger Program

Date posted: 13 February 2018

The West Australian Government has announced the first round of recipients for its $20 million five-year Aboriginal Ranger Program.

The 13 recipient groups will employ rangers to undertake land and sea management including conservation, cultural, tourism and education activities across a range of areas. This funding will provide significant new jobs and training opportunities, including for 47 Aboriginal women ranger positions.

The funding recipients are:

'It was very encouraging to see so many applications for the first round of the program, which reflects the aspirations of Aboriginal people to establish ranger programs to manage their country,' said Environment Minister, Stephen Dawson. 'We strongly support the aspirations of Aboriginal people to welcome visitors to their lands, so they can share a deeper understanding of Aboriginal culture and our joint efforts to keep the country healthy and alive.'
