Strengthening Community

The work being undertaken in Indigenous Protected Areas and by Indigenous rangers causes a ripple effect over remote communities.

Almost 80 per cent of groups engage with their communities by working with local schools and kids, consulting Traditional Owners about important issues, organising visits to country and sharing cultural knowledge.

Rangers frequently play a leadership role in communities and children frequently reporting wanting to be a ranger when they grow up.

Reduced alcohol-related issues and incarceration have been reported where ranger groups are active.
