Marduthuni Rangers

YACMAC, not so long ago, established the Marduthuni Rangers Program (mid of 2016) to provide an employment stream for members. YACMAC rangers program is funded through the Prime Minister and Cabinet Indigenous advancement strategy.

The Marduthuni Rangers program is positioned to provide training opportunities and on-country initiatives whilst being actively involved in cultural preservation and sharing.

The Marduthuni Rangers will focus on projects to manage key threatened fauna species and priority biodiversity and cultural assets in the area through active on ground management by Traditional Owners implementing both traditional and contemporary natural and cultural resource management (NCRM) practices to reduce critical threats.  These are likely to include population monitoring for both introduced predators/ herbivores and native species, identification of threatened species habitats, fire and weed management, and introduced predator/herbivore control.
