Adjumarllarl Rangers have been operating for over 30 years, making them one of the Northern Territory’s first Indigenous ranger programs. They manage an area of approximately 10,000 km2 at the gateway to northern Arnhem Land, in the Western Arnhem region around Gunbalanya. The region is rich in biodiversity including floodplains, savanna woodland and sandstone escarpment.
Adjumartllarl Rangers are at the frontline of managing invasive weed species and have worked determinedly over the years to ensure that highly flammable gamba grass – which burns three times as hot as native grasses and can render savanna burning projects ineligible - does not take move into Arnhem Land and take hold.
Adjumarllarl Rangers are part of the West Arnhem Land Fire Abatement (WALFA) registered under ALFA NT
