The Yugul Mangi Rangers are part of the South East Arnhem Land Fire Abatement (SEALFA) carbon project, which operates within the South East Arnhem Land Indigenous Protected Area (SEAL IPA). Registered as an Eligible Offsets Project by ALFA (NT) Ltd in 2015, SEALFA is managed by the Northern Land Council (NLC). Together with the Numbulwar Rangers, the Yugul Mangi Rangers implement a coordinated annual program of strategic early dry season burning and fire suppression activities in the late dry season.
The Yugul Mangi Rangers are core to land and sea management activities throughout 6,700km2 of the Roper-Gulf region. The Rangers came together in the late 1990s working on feral pig, weed and dust suppression projects. Today they undertake a broad range of land and sea management activities in collaboration with many government and scientific agencies.
