How are women involved?

Answer

Indigenous women are a vital part of Indigenous Ranger programmes, making up around 25% of the total workforce. By caring for their country, Indigenous women are carrying on a cultural responsibility which has been passed down by elders until today.

Indigenous women rangers work alongside men in some regions, but in others they have unique responsibilities such as caring for places significant for women. They do ecological research, land management, and seed propagation, as well as mapping and maintaining women's cultural heritage sites.

By working as Indigenous Rangers, women are continuing to look after their country as they have for tens of thousands of years.
