Indigenous rangers - Friends of Indigenous Rangers and Indigenous Protected Areas

Tjuwanpa

The Tjuwanpa Rangers started operations in 2005. They are the longest-established of the Central Land Council Ranger groups. Since 2008 the group has been effectively funded as part of the Government's Working on Country program.

The group has played a key role in caring for country, including in consultation with Parks and Wildlife. This has included burning programs, weed control, population monitoring of endangered species, and maintaining infrastructure for tourism. 

In 2009 the Tjuwanpa Rangers won the NT Indigenous Landcare Award and were short-listed for the National Landcare Awards.
