Working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

Tjuwanpa Women Rangers

Based in Hermannsburg (Ntaria), the Tjuwanpa Women Rangers facilitate opportunities for Indigenous women to enhance their professional development in conservation and land management.

Akarkutja Warnka Mabaka Kaltjithika meaning ‘older women and younger women all learning together’ is important to the Western Aranda elders. The women rangers manage natural and cultural resources within the Ntaria region, and share their traditional ecological knowledge among generations.

In collaboration with the Central Land Council and the Parks and Wildlife Commission of the Northern Territory, the Tjuwanpa Women Rangers undertake fire, weed and feral animal management across 4,500 hectares of land that includes five Aboriginal Land Trusts and the Finke Gorge National Park.
