Rangers share ideas on IWD

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

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
