According to a new report by Country Needs People alliance member, Pew Charitable Trusts, our Outback needs people living on and managing it to keep it healthy, and more Indigenous rangers and Indigenous Protected Areas are key to making that happen.
"The Outback has been the home of Indigenous Australians for about 50,000 years. Over this period, Traditional Owners have tended, shaped and nurtured the landscape. Reciprocally, the landscape has helped to forge Indigenous identity and culture. This book celebrates that relationship and its modern manifestations – and also recognises that there are new elements in this landscape, and new people and enterprises are now responsible for caring for this magical country."
