Njanjma Rangers will spend time on country with people, keep country healthy, and keep the plants and animals where they should be.

Our MISSION is to…

Sustainably and effectively self-manage our opportunities and interests on our country.

Whether the opportunity is economic and commercial, of social/community benefit or relating to environmental and cultural heritage protection and conservation, it remains our responsibility and obligation.

If it’s happening on our country, it needs to be, and will be, managed by Bininj.

We have some ways to go in the building of the skills and expertise of our members, but one thing we know for sure is…sustainable and therefore effective management can only occur in remote locations if local people fulfill the management roles.
