Indigenous Protected Areas and Indigenous ranger jobs are protecting nature and transforming lives in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities around Australia.
Now is a crucial moment for the Indigenous Protected Area and Indigenous ranger programs. With the federal election looming, and the need and demand for more Indigenous Protected Areas and Indigenous ranger jobs.
Join the Country Needs People campaign in calling for the major parties to:
- Double the funding for Indigenous ranger programs and Indigenous Protected Areas over the next five years.
- Extend the length of Indigenous land and sea management contracts to generate the stability required for Indigenous groups and individuals to build capacity and deliver lasting social economic and environmental outcomes.
- Establish a long term target of funding for 5000 rangers to meet both environmental needs across the continent and fully realise the social and economic benefits of these programs.
Call on your local MP and key politicians to grow and secure Indigenous Protected Areas and Indigenous ranger jobs for the long term.
