Jawoyn Rangers have been caring for country and incorporating customary values and culture with the latest in scientific practice since the late 1990s. Based in Katherine, the rangers manage 16,000 square kilometres of land including part of the West Arnhem Land plateau.
Jawoyn Rangers work includes land, fire and weed management, as well as cultural management of one the world’s largest and most significant bodies of rock art. They also work in collaboration with the Nitmiluk National Park rangers in managing fire, and conducting rock art surveys in the park.
The Jawoyn Association hosts two savanna carbon projects, Jawoyn 1 and Jawoyn 2. The Rangers are also engaged in management of the South East Arnhem Land project (hosted by ALFA NT) and the Nitmiluk National Park project (hosted by the joint-managed Nitmiluk National Park).
