Jawoyn Rangers are one of our great success stories.
The rangers have been caring for country, by incorporating traditional values and culture with the latest in scientific practice, since the late 1990s.
The ranger program is a successful model to achieving our broader core values of managing country effectively, building employment and education opportunities, and protecting cultural sites of significance.
Operating out of Jawoyn headquarters in Katherine, we have 10 permanent rangers supported by a full-time coordinator. In the high season, there are more than 40 rangers working on our programs.
Our approach to caring for country includes:
- Land management
- Fire management
- Cultural resource management: br>This includes people, knowledge, paintings, objects, ceremonial, medical, environmental and other Indigenous knowledge.
- Visitor management control: br> This includes monitoring poachers who illegally enter Jawoyn land to poach wildlife, cultural artefacts and hunt feral animals.
