Expressions of interest for the third round of the Aboriginal Ranger Program are now open.
Under the program, new and existing Aboriginal organisations can employ and train rangers to carry out land and sea management and tourism activities across a range of tenures in remote and regional WA. Funded projects in rounds 1 and 2 have involved cultural awareness and immersion experiences for visitors, guided welcome to country tours, management of visitors or tourists and tourism assets, and education programs and mentoring.
Expressions of interest can be submitted to the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, and are open until March 27, 2020. Expression of interest application form and Program guidelines are available here.
