Noongar Budjar Rangers teach the next generation

Posted in: 
Aboriginal NRM

The Wheatbelt NRM Noongar Budjar Rangers with members from Northam and Brookton onboard planted almost 35,000 seedlings over a five day period in late July.

With an amazing work ethic, the team ploughed through sandy paddocks planting tube stock for a sandalwood plantation as well as tackling an awkward saline site.

The work was all part of our partnership with the Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund which is planting the sites as part of their work in the voluntary carbon market.

A busload of students from the Northam Clontarf Academy came to help out and it was inspiring to see the next generation of custodians of this land being taught by our current Ranger team.

Seeing the Ranger team in action not only enabled the students to share their connection to country but demonstrated the work skills and effort required to progress employment opportunities in the field of NRM.

It was inspiring to see how much our Ranger team has grown over the last 12 months in regard to their work commitment, their skills and their leadership out in the field. They delivered quality work in tough conditions.

Well done Team.
