YMAC would like to congratulate successful recipients in our representative areas, who have received funding as part of the State Government’s ‘Aboriginal Ranger Program, Round Three’.

Nyamal Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC, Wintawari Guruma Aboriginal Corporation, and Bundundea Aboriginal Corporation – joint with Yullela Aboriginal Corporation, have received funding to employ and train rangers to carry out land and sea management, and tourism activities on Country.

They will share in the more than 4.7 million which has been distributed across 10 projects.

Overall, the grants will create employment and training opportunities for Aboriginal people in regional and remote communities. It follows funding of almost $16 million over the first two rounds of the program.
