Linking up with the Green Army
The rangers have been working with Njanjma Green Army participants, helping to teach them a number of natural and cultural resource management skills. The Green Army is a federal government program that funds young people to undertake environmental management projects. Njanjma have been contracted through Conservation Volunteers Australia to carry out a project involving weed work, biodiversity monitoring and cultural site protection.
The rangers have recently linked up with the Green Army participants to help conduct site risk assessments and establish camera trap monitoring stations. Involvement in camera trapping work has involved teaching participants about camera trapping methods and helping to install camera trap monitoring sites in the Greater Red Lily Area. This work complements existing ranger work and builds the skills and capacity of those involved in the Green Army program.
