CLC Ranger Groups

The Central Land Council (CLC) supports local community involvement in land management through ranger programs.

The CLC Ranger programs are always received enthusiastically in remote communities and help Aboriginal people to stay out bush and meet their traditional obligations to country.

Participants are on the Community Development Employment Program (CDEP) and receive a top-up wage. Rangers gain valuable hands on experience and some choose to formalise their training through courses at Batchelor and CDU. It is hoped that an increasing number will gain full-time employment in the future.

The main ranger groups include Walpiri Rangers (based in Yuendemu with new groups starting in Willowra and Nyirripi), Wulaign Rangers (Lajamanu), Tjuwanpa Rangers (Hermannsburg) and Muru-Warinyi Ankkul Rangers (Tennant Creek).

These programs are extremely popular and help to keep culture alive and strong.

Recent programs include:

* Sangsters Bore (Lungkartajarra) Threatened Species Project
* Lajamanu IPA
* Tanami Biodiversity Monitoring Program
* Tjuwanpa Rangers
* Tennant Creek Rangers.

The CLC will continue to support these groups to gain greater financial security in the future.
