Applications are now open for the Murray-Darling Basin Indigenous River Rangers Program.

The $3.1 million Program will enable river rangers to use their knowledge and connection to Country to manage and restore rivers and wetlands across the breadth of the Basin.

It will also establish up to four new Indigenous river ranger groups to work on waterway health projects that support environmental and cultural outcomes across the Basin.

Indigenous organisations in the Murray-Darling Basin wanting to establish a rangers program to manage, protect and sustain Australia’s valuable environmental assets are strongly encouraged to apply.

Applications are open until Tuesday 18 May 2021.

To apply, visit GrantsConnect.
