Acting Minister for the Environment and Natural Resources, Eva Lawler has announced $549,307 in funding for seven Aboriginal Ranger Groups under the Land Management and Conservation Fund.
The Government is investing in the bush through its Protecting Country, Creating Jobs initiative, which will see $4.1 million in grants delivered over two years to ranger groups for essential equipment and $2 million per year over four years for Land Management and Conservation Fund projects that improve and develop conservation practices on Aboriginal land.
“These grants will support jobs on country, delivering economic opportunities in some of the Territory’s most remote communities.
“Aboriginal Rangers provide a crucial frontline role in conservation and natural resource management and these grants recognise and support this important contribution.”
The following organisations have received Land Management and Conservation Fund grants under this latest round:
These latest grants come on the back of a first round allocation of $2.8 million to Aboriginal ranger groups last year for essential capital items and infrastructure as well as Land Management and Conservation Fund projects.
