Warddeken Land Management

Torsten Unasch - Mamardawerre Ranger Coordinator at Warddeken Land Management, will be presenting as a panellist during Session 1.5 - Fire in the Top End: NT Panel.

The Traditional Owners of the Warddeken Indigenous Protected Area formed Warddeken Land Management Ltd. in 2007. This aboriginal owned, not-for-profit company combines traditional ecological knowledge with Western science to manage and protect one of Australia’s most unique environments.

 

Warddeken Land Management Ltd. operates out of the remote communities of Kabulwarnamyo, Kamarkarwan and Manmoyi in western Arnhem Land and employs up to 130 Indigenous rangers a year on a casual basis.  The Indigenous rangers work on a variety of projects including fire management and carbon abatement, weed and feral animal control, rock art conservation, education and cultural heritage management.
