Operating across Arabana Lands, covering 69,000 square kilometres of the South Australian outback, the Arabana Rangers work with pastoralists, special interest groups, and government and non-government agencies to make Arabana Country and culture healthier - and to keep it healthy.
In 2014, the Wadlhu Ngurrku-Ku (Healthy Country) Plan was released following extensive community consultation. This Plan communicates eight targets for community and Country. These targets are Culture and Language; Ularaka (knowledge); Kutha (water); Kati Thanda (Lake Eyre); Bush Tucker (plants and animals); Health of Arabana people; Living Ecosystems; and Sustainable Income and Development.
The Arabana Rangers work across all of these eight targets areas, focusing on achieving positive long-term impacts (against measurable goals) for community, across all-of-Country.
With a vision of emphasising the responsibility of our "knowledge keepers and our protectors of Country, language, culture and and story working together, and with new beginnings connect our children and grandchildren to our sands."
The Arabana Rangers' mission is to: Manage and protect our country by building relationships and encouraging our people to come home (=Country).
