Rangers share ideas on IWD
INDIGENOUS women from across the wet tropics have spent the past few days gathered on Yalanji country to share ideas and discuss issues related to women working in natural resource management (NRM).
The 3-day women’s Land Management Workshop was the first of its kind since 2008 and coincided with International Women’s Day (IWD).
The workshop was hosted by Jabalbina Yalanji Aboriginal Corporation in conjunction with Terrain and Wet Tropics Management Authority.
“Discussing issues that affect indigenous women rangers and women in NRM means we get to help each other out. Seeing how other female rangers work, and how other NRM organisations work is very important,” said Jabalbina Ranger and WHS Officer, Danica Beveen Reisener
