Jaemie Page and Uriah Crocombe - Senior Rangers at Warddeken Land Management, will be presenting as panellists during Session 1.5 - Fire in the Top End: NT Panel.

Thamarrurr Rangers was established in 2001 by the Traditional Owners of the Thamarrurr Region, who sought to actively address land and sea management issues. It has grown from humble beginnings through CDEP (Community Development and Employment Programs), to a well-resourced program through WoC, NTG contracts and ‘fee for service’ agreements.

Thamarrurr Rangers are an important part of Thamarrurr Development Corporation, employing 17+ local Indigenous staff and 4 non-Indigenous support staff, and actively engaging with Traditional Owners and Community members in natural and cultural resource management. The Rangers work across 18,000 km2 of Country and 240 km of coastline from Cape Scott in the north-east to the Fitzmaurice River in the south, and are the only sea country ranger group working west of Daly River across to the NT/WA border.
