Sign the Country Needs People statement

Indigenous rangers and Indigenous Protected Areas are two of Australia's most successful programs - delivering real results for people and nature. 

We call for Government to grow and secure these programs in consultation with traditional owners and their support organisations by:

  • Doubling the number of Indigenous ranger jobs over the next five years;
  • Committing to a ten year funding horizon for Indigenous rangers and Indigenous Protected Areas;

  • Supporting a long term target of 5000 jobs in Indigenous land and sea management across Australia.
