Posted: December 17th, 2018
The State Government is calling for Expressions of Interest for funding under the second round of the $20 million Aboriginal Ranger Program.
The first round of the program provided $8.45 million to 13 groups across the State, creating 85 new jobs and 80 training opportunities for Aboriginal people, including 47 female Aboriginal ranger positions. YMAC was successful in securing funding in the first round on behalf of Malgana Shark Bay People’s Native Title Claim Group, as part of the proposed “Pathway to a Malgana Country Land and Sea Management Program”.
Round two will see rangers employed to undertake land and sea management including conservation, cultural, tourism and education activities across a range of tenures. A total of $9 million will be available in the second round, for single or multi-year projects up to three years.
