Working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

Mimal Rangers

The Mimal Rangers are based at Weemol, near Bulman, and manage over 600 000 hectares of rugged central Arnhem Land country.

They are one of the five ranger groups that are delivering the West Arnhem Land Fire Abatement project, a project that is funded to reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions entering the atmosphere by implementing a traditional fire management regime.

The rangers have also been protecting springs, billabongs and large areas of native grasses critical to the survival of magpie geese from buffalo and pig activity.

The Mimal Rangers, in conjunction with the Bulman school, are involved in the development of a database of local Indigenous language names for plants, animal and cultural sites.
