Jawoyn rangers assisted with hosting the CARA national ranger conference at Nitmiluk last week. Rangers from around Australia descended on Katherine for an informative forum with fun side activities.
Jawoyn rangers presented on 4 topics including our Territory Conservation Agreement, Gamba control, savanna burning methodology and joint management. Some of our rangers are members of Northern Territory Ranger Association and participated in national council meetings and the NT AGM. A celbratory cake was cut for the 25 year anniversary of the International Ranger Federation as this organisation founded in 1992, has a membership of 63 ranger associations from 46 countries, on six of the seven continents
Jawoyn rangers also lead tours for our visiting colleagues to Hot Springs, Leliyn Falls and a bush walk through Nitmiluk. It was a lot of fun and we hope to meet our ranger friends again possibly where they work.
