Responding to the Indigenous Ranger Sector Strategy 2022-2028 - Consultation Draft

There are just four days left to provide feedback on the Indigenous Ranger Sector Strategy 2022-2028, Consultation Draft. While Conservation Management commends the National Indigenous Australians Agency in acting on the need for an overarching strategy and supportive structures for the Indigenous Ranger Sector, we see some critical failings in the overall approach. Our feedback is  a collective effort from the Conservation Management team – please feel free to adapt and use any views we have expressed here to make them your own.  You can find the Draft Strategy documents, and provide feedback via consultation workshop (Tuesday 31 May), survey or written response at the NIAA website.

Palawa people speaking for country

It's exciting times, to have Tasmanian Government Departments stepping up to the plate by supporting traditional custodians to speak for country and develop a shared vision for its future use and management.

Painting Country for looking after Country

It was wintertime in the desert country of Maralinga Tjarutja people, and properly aru (cold) too. Camping out, we were lucky to have shelter from a shed tank as we woke up to thick fog and then rain. The Oak Valley Rangers were hosting several schools from the area for a two-way science camp, talking and learning about weather and seasons. We were also there to continue planning for the proposed Indigenous Protected Area; recording the important things to look after (targets), and the threats impacting on those targets.

Translating to Tetum – Conservation Standards Training in Timor Leste

As we have talked about previously, the Covid-19 pandemic has meant that we’ve had to adapt the way that we deliver training and workshops, and support teams and communities across the world. Working with Conservation International (CI) in Timor-Leste has been an enlightening experience of how we can work together to share the Conservation Standards adaptive management framework in Covid times and in another language – Tetum. Neither of our facilitators Heather Moorcroft or Pip Walsh speak Tetum but with the CI in-country team both translating and helping out with the in-room facilitating, we were able to successfully run the first training block on the Conservation Standards from our homes in Australia.
