Why do I support this initiative? The goals stated and outcomes already achieved are more than a lot of non-indigenous initiatives have achieved. This is good for all Australians. A great initiative. Protecting our precious environment, supporting cultural strength, creating jobs for people to support their families, opening up new opportunities for men and women, young and old, and creating genuine and positive partnerships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. Indigenous rangers and Indigenous Protected Areas are a contemporary expression of the unbroken and ancient connection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to this continent.
