Indigenous Rangers reviving the Outback

Indigenous Ranger Programs and Indigenous Protected Areas are one of the little known but outstanding success stories of the Outback in recent years.

Providing real jobs in often remote places, these programs combine traditional cultural knowledge, western science and modern technologies to manage and protect our Outback’s natural and cultural heritage.

Through planned actions such as controlling feral animals, managing Outback bush fires and maintaining infrastructure, the remarkably positive benefits have ranged from helping to prevent wildlife extinctions, to delivering significant health and economic outcomes. These programs have transformed both lives, as well as landscapes.

While this has been an extraordinary win-win, there is still far greater potential and need in WA than is currently being realised. However with the support of people like you, we can make Ranger Programs and Indigenous Protected Areas an even greater success story for WA’s Outback and its people.


Our Outback is an amazing place, but what makes it special is at risk. 

Help make Outback carbon farming a reality

Carbon farming is breathing life back into the Wheatbelt. But just over the fence in WA’s Outback, where it's needed most, it's not allowed.

Kent Broad has been a farmer all his life and he's seen first-hand the benefits that carbon farming has brought to WA's Wheatbelt - but the Outback is missing out.

Help make Outback carbon farming a reality - tell government today.
