“We have worked really hard to set up our Indigenous protected area and ranger groups but there’s more to do,” she said.

“Our rangers are maintaining the land, managing threats, spraying weeds, eradicating crazy ants, rescuing turtles, clearing ghost nets and this kind of funding boost could help us get the extra equipment we need to get those jobs done.”
