Arafura Swamp Rangers

Gurruwiling, the Arafura Swamp, is a Wetland of National Importance and the largest paperbark swamp in Australia. 

The Arafura Swamp Rangers Aboriginal Corporation comprises eight ranger groups, including the Gurruwiling, Wanga Djakamirr and South-East Arafura Catchment Rangers and five satellite groups.

These ranger groups look after Gurruwiling, its catchment and adjacent sea country using a blend of traditional and modern approaches. 

Activities include strategic annual burning for carbon abatement, managing feral animals and weeds, monitoring saltwater intrusion, managing cultural sites, and collecting scientific data and eggs from crocodile nests.
