In partnership with the Federal Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, QMDC employs Aboriginal Rangers to deliver environmental outcomes as part of the Working on Country Regional Program. 

The QMDC Aboriginal Rangers Program undertakes projects to help manage land across a variety of tenures, in partnership with state and local government, and private landholders.inglewoodcrew_trap

Our rangers work with land managers to implement on-ground works to help boost the sustainability of the Basin.

It's hoped that along with strong natural and cultural outcomes, these projects will result in an exchange of Aboriginal cultural knowledge.

 

 

 

See our rangers in action!

In 2016 we produced a film on our Aboriginal Rangers titled: Our Heritage, Your Heritage, a day in the life of a QMDC Aboriginal Ranger. We have dedicated this film to the late Aunty Sarah Trindall who appeared on behalf of the RAAG. We hope you enjoy this snapshot of their work, watch the film here.
