The Lama Lama National Park is in the Cape York Peninsula bioregion, and is located east of the Great Dividing Range. The region includes highly significant wetlands, coastal and riparian vegetation, and extensive woodlands. There has been little clearing and the tree cover remains virtually intact and contains habitat for vulnerable, rare and endangered species including the endangered red goshawk.
The Lama Lama Land Trust was established under Queensland's Aboriginal Land Act 1991 to hold in trust Running Creek on behalf of the Traditional Owners. The Conservation Agreement between the Lama Lama Land Trust and the Queensland Government to establish the Running Creek Nature Refuge provides the framework for the Lama Lama Rangers to manage the ecosystems and habitats.
The rangers focus on land management works in the Lama Lama Land Trust, which includes Running Creek Nature Refuge and surrounding Aboriginal freehold land in Cape York Peninsula in Queensland. The rangers work also includes assessing and documenting the natural and cultural values and managing and implementing key environmental activities.
