Banjima Rangers back on Country!
Thanks to a combination of external grants and fee-for-service work, our Banjima Rangers have been able to get back on Banjima Country over the past two months to take on cultural and environmental work.
This also included fire management training with DBCA at Perth’s new Bushfire Centre of Excellence.
Our on-Country trips included visits to our Ranger HQ in Tom Price to prepare cars and equipment, Karijini National Park for the start of a bush medicine identification project, and a fee-for-service environmental monitoring trip on Weeli Wolli Creek.
The monitoring by our Rangers was done alongside Rio Tinto’s environmental team from the nearby Hope Downs 1 mine.
As part of BNTAC’s strategy of having a more self- sustainable Ranger program, BCM is constantly looking for partnerships with other organisations and companies on Banjima Country that can help provide jobs, education, and training opportunities for our Rangers and wider Banjima community.
