DG: Indigenous Rangers’ Training

Training of indigenous rangers to manage the environment and natural landscapes, including incorporating traditional knowledge.

Why it is important?

As the traditional custodians of the land, there are multiple benefits to be gained from empowering Traditional Owners to be active in caring for country.

Examples of Local Action

  • Work with local schools to support and encourage students to become involved in training programs for Indigenous rangers.
  • Establish a training program for Indigenous women rangers.
