The Gawler Ranges Rangers focus their land management activities on 758,900 hectares within the Gawler Ranges native title area. This area includes a number of significant sites such as the Gawler Ranges National Park, Lake Gairdner National Park and Lake Gillies Conservation Reserve and some 30 pastoral leases.
A variety of different habitats such as mallee, chenopod scrublands and semi-arid rangelands and several threatened species, including the yellow-footed rock-wallaby, are found in these areas.
The Gawler Ranges Rangers and Traditional Owners from the Gawler Ranges Native Title Claim are bringing together traditional and contemporary approaches to land management. The rangers manage and preserve the natural and cultural values of the area by working on activities like weed and feral animal control, fire and visitor management, as well as working to identify, protect and interpret cultural heritage sites.
