Crocodile Islands Rangers programs include Working on Country, Learning on Country and our Indigenous Protected Area plan.
Working on country
Learning on country
Our Learning on Country (LOC) program provides school students the opportunity to learn with a cultural teacher in the field. In partnership with Milingimbi School the program aims to transfer and preserve Yolngu knowledge.
Indigenous Protected Area plan
Our Indigenous Protected Area plan expresses our intent to manage our country as a protected area for the promotion of biodiversity and cultural resource conservation, for the benefit of all Maringa people – past, present and future.
Our focus areas
Our work includes:
- Biosecurity activities (community animal health reports, marine debris surveillance, citrus pest monitoring, community education)
- Sacred site management
- Fire management
- Sea country patrols and surveillance
- Biodiversity surveys, turtle/oyster/shorebirds research and monitoring
- Learning on Country through our Junior Ranger program
We support our community by contributing to sea rescues, fire-fighting, developing local indigenous enterprises, snake removal, and supporting youth engagement activities.
Our ranger base is on Milingimbi Island, and we work on the mainland, surrounding islands and the sea country, within our Indigenous Protected Area.
Djama means work
We work in a very remote and beautiful part of Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory.
Crocodile Islands Rangers is a program of the Milingimbi Outstations Progress Resource Aboriginal Corporation.
