Rock art management workshop
In late May, the Njanjma Rangers hosted a week of rock art recording and workshops with Kakadu National Park Rangers and our long-term partners and rock art experts Nicholas Hall and Tristen Jones. At the workshops, we discussed strategies for how different regional ranger groups could work together to improve their rock art management programs. Specifically, other ranger groups were invited to see what the Njanjma Rangers had learned in setting up their new Rock Art Management System. As the home of some of the most beautiful and most significant rock art (Kunwardde Bim) sites in Australia, Bim work is a central focus of the Rangers’ activities. We collaborate regularly with various research and academic institutions, focussing in the fields of archaeology, cultural heritage management and earth sciences. Our Bim work places particular emphasis on the recording, dating, management and conservation of rock art sites. Site-protection and education forms a central part of our ongoing work with the amazing rock art sites on our country.
