Tjuwanpa Rangers

The Tjuwanpa Rangers are one of the longest standing ranger groups in Central Australia. They are based in Hermannsburg (Ntaria) and work on neighbouring Finke Gorge and West MacDonnell National Parks and Aboriginal Land Trust lands.

They are responsible for removing athel pine and other weeds in the Finke River catchment and managing threatened such as the marsupial mole and the largest known population of the endangered Slaters skink.

The rangers are also active commercially, installing infrastructure at the Palm Valley campground and developing tourist campgrounds at three outstations.
