Our ranger program is instrumental in creating employment opportunities.
Our junior rangers are completing Certificate III and IV in our land and sea ranger program.
The aim of this program is to engage youth and long-term unemployed people and provide opportunities for them that will lead to employment.
Ten students are commencing this program in April. This program is supported by the Wet Tropics Management Authority. The work our youths undertake is assisting the environment, so it’s a win-win situation. Projects include weed management, water quality testing and a revegetation program.
GBRMPA has so far granted us $55,000 this year to assist with this program.
