Together, the Garawa and Waanyi Garawa ranger groups manage over 16,000km2 of Waanyi and Garawa country. The rangers continue to implement extensive fire management and weed management programs. Aerial and ground burning work has been carried out to optimise biodiversity and defend against wildfire. The rangers have participated in scientific carbon-measuring and analysis with a view to capacity-building and positioning ranger groups and other traditional owners in the carbon marketplace. The ranger group has also commenced cultural documentation work in relation to traditional knowledge in their work area.
Collaboratively working with Traditional Owners, the recent establishment of the Ganalanga Mindibirrina Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) has increased possibility of engaging more indigenous Rangers on Waanyi and Garawa country.
