SIGN THE PETITION TO GROW FUNDING FOR INDIGENOUS RANGERS IN THE NT

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, four wheel drives, and other practical projects to ensure rangers can be out on country managing fire, weeds, ferals and other environmental threats. 

But the funding is due to run out and rangers need more support to get to work caring for country. Ahead of the 2020 NT Budget, now is an important time to let the government know that Territorians want to grow funding for Aboriginal rangers. 

Sign the petition to call on the NT Labor government to grow funding for Indigenous rangers in the 2020 Budget.

From the desert to the mangroves, across millions of hectares of our Territory environment, we need to manage country to ensure we have a healthy environment for the future. 

Indigenous Rangers and Indigenous Protected Areas do a great job of managing land and sea country across our Territory to control fire, feral animals, invasive weeds, ghost nets and much more, at the same time as creating local jobs that people are proud to do.

Dear Minister Lawler and Local MP,

CC: Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Aboriginal Affairs

From the desert to the mangroves, across millions of hectares of our Territory environment, we need to manage country to ensure we have a healthy environment for the future. It’s a huge job, and Indigenous rangers and Indigenous Protected Areas play a vital role in managing land and sea across our Territory. They work to control fire, feral animals, invasive weeds, ghost nets and much more, at the same time as creating much valued local jobs.

The important work Indigenous rangers are doing to protect nature is having positive effects in Aboriginal communities around the Territory. Ranger jobs give people a chance to do meaningful work, be healthy and connected to country, and be leaders and role models for their families and communities.

Our Territory is so vast and unique it deserves ongoing management to match its huge scale. The NT Government's welcome investment in Aboriginal rangers should be grown in the 2020 Budget.

Will you grow and secure NT Government funding for Indigenous rangers and Indigenous Protected Areas into the future?

Yours sincerely,
<NAME>

Tell the candidates in your local electorate that the growth and security of Indigenous ranger funding is important to you - for the protection of the Northern Territory's natural and cultural heritage, and for the wellbeing of Aboriginal communities around the Territory.
