Josh Frydenberg is the Member for Kooyong in east Melbourne, and the new Environment Minister. Add your voice to our petition to join us in ensuring Minister Frydenberg knows how successful Indigenous rangers and Indigenous Protected Areas are at protecting nature and transforming lives in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
Around the country, Indigenous rangers fight fires, ferals and weeds, clean up our coastlines, and protect threatened plants and animals. But millions of hectares of Australia remain unmanaged and the need for Indigenous rangers far exceeds the current funding.
We’re calling for the Australian Government to double funding and secure long term contracts for Indigenous rangers and Indigenous Protected Areas.
