Working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

Kija Rangers

The Kija Rangers manage Kija Country which includes rocky outcrops, rugged cliffs andthe famous Bungle Bungles and are based at the community of Warmun (Turkey Creek) in the east Kimberley.

The Kija Rangers work includes threatened species management of the Gouldian finch and purple-crowned fairy wren, an extensive fire management programme (aerial and ground burning) and control of weeds in the Ord River catchment area. The group is active in pursuing fee-for-service contract opportunities and is engaging an increasing number of repeat clients.

The Kija Rangers work with and learn from their cultural elders. Together they identify priority conservation and land management targets while back to country trips assist in the transfer of knowledge and strengthen cultural values and connection to country.
