Over its current term, the NT government has supported Aboriginal ranger groups across the Territory with a funding program to help their operations. Projects like ranger work sheds, science and planning, work vehicles, and other practical projects to ensure rangers can be out on country managing fire, weeds, feral animals and other environmental threats.
But the funding is due to run out this year and rangers need more support to get to work caring for country. Ahead of the 2020 NT Election, now is an important time to let your local candidates know that Territorians want to grow funding for Aboriginal rangers.
Sign the petition to call on all NT pollies to commit to grow funding for Indigenous rangers before the 2020 election.
