A Day in the Life of the Djelk Rangers

A Day in the Life of the Djelk Rangers

The ranger station was a hive of activity when I arrived.  A line of Toyotas, bonnets up, were parked in front of the ranger station. Some had been washed and some were being washed and all were having the essential elements for a hard day in the bush checked – tyres, oil, fuel etc. Safety is a huge priority for the rangers who operate in a landscape where an accident or breakdown could be life threatening.

A Successful Second Trip

A Successful Second Trip

Following our successful 'reccie' in March to Maningrida to present community members in the Djlek IPA with a project proposal developed from their concerns about Living on Healthy, we returned with a larger Arnhembrand team to Maningrida in the Djelk IPA. The community endorsed our proposal and started drawings, digital and oral recordings and signed participation consent forms.
