Around the country, Indigenous rangers are protecting wildlife, fighting ferals, controlling wildfires, battling weeds and securing our coastline. But their future is uncertain.
Funding deadlines loom and the need for environmental management far exceeds the number of rangers who can carry it out.
Together our voice is incredibly powerful. Sign the petition today to tell the Government that Indigenous rangers and Indigenous Protected Areas are a vital force for our nation that should be given funding security and growth.
Dear Prime Minister, Indigenous Affairs Minister and <your local MP's name will be automatically included>,
Indigenous ranger programs and Indigenous Protected Areas are working. They’re working for the environment, and they’re working for communities.
I recognise the value of work of Indigenous rangers and you should too by doubling funding for Indigenous rangers and IPAs, securing long term contracts and setting a long term target of 5000 Indigenous land and sea management jobs.
