What is needed?


Threats to Country are getting worse, but with sustained long-term funding, Indigenous rangers and Indigenous protected areas can turn things around. That’s why Country Needs People is calling on all political parties and candidates to commit to: 

  1. Double the number of Indigenous rangers over 10 years.
  2. Create a fund for ranger training, capacity building, networking, and infrastructure costs.
  3. Double the funding for the Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) program over four years. 
  4. Ensure equal employment opportunities for women rangers by 2030.
