Working with Indigenous rangers in north Queensland

Hub researchers Dr Justin Perry and Dr Norm Duke were invited to join more than 120 Indigenous rangers from across Queensland at the 2019 Queensland Indigenous Land and Sea Ranger Workshop last week.

Hosted by Dawul Waru and Queensland Government’s Department of Environment and Science, the event celebrated the inspiring work and successes of rangers from across the state and provided opportunities for sharing knowledge and showcasing partnerships. Justin Perry co-presented with Aak Puul Ngantam on defining metrics of success for feral animal management, while the Carpentaria Land Council Aboriginal Corporation rangers and Norm Duke shared learnings from field work for mangrove dieback in the Gulf of Carpentaria. The Hub were also proud to co-sponsor the opening dinner where rangers received awards for their contributions to their communities and the environment.

For more information, please contact Justin or Norm.
