The Coalition hasn’t yet committed to doubling ranger jobs and IPA funding, or delivering the security Country Needs People has asked for, however funding for Indigenous Protected Areas and Indigenous rangers has grown during the Coalition Government. The current government signed contracts continuing funding for Indigenous rangers until June 2021 and for Indigenous Protected Areas until June 2023. Coalition policy states they will continue to invest in the ranger program but as yet there is no specific plan for future growth.
