Project spotlight: Indigenous Women Rangers’ Environmental Knowledge Network (WREN).
Together with Indigenous groups, we are aiming for a fourfold increase in the number of Indigenous Women Land and Sea Rangers from 250 to 1,000 by 2022.
Thanks to the significant support of philanthropic partners, WWF-Australia works with women rangers to run an Indigenous Women Rangers’ Environmental Knowledge Network (WREN).
WREN is led by Indigenous Australian women and supports the rangers, coordinators and cultural advisors to discuss the challenges that face female rangers, identify solutions and push for policy changes and more jobs.
The support of generous people, including Anita Belgiorno-Nettis AM, has enabled significant progress in reaching our shared goals. Anita’s support has allowed:
- The creation of dedicated Women Ranger Development Officer positions in the Kimberley and north Queensland to support women rangers and provide training and capacity building opportunities;
- Women ranger knowledge exchange programs;
- Aboriginal ranger forums; and
- The genesis of the Helen Tribe Traineeship.
