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