Five big rivers of the north Kimberley, the King River, Forest River, Pentecost River, Durack River and Ord River all intersect on Balanggarra country.
Looking after this vast and beautiful area are the Balanggarra rangers, managing more than 30,000 square km of land, freshwater and sea country. They’ve had a huge year working with researchers, scientists, government departments and others to undertake conservation activities and protect important cultural sites. Some of the projects they’ve been involved in include the taste aversion project to help protect goannas from the cane toad, fighting late season fires and helping other nearby ranger groups get fires under control and looking after threatened species like the Gouldian finch.
The team keeps growing from strength to strength and recently welcomed George as the newest and youngest member of the team. Keep up the deadly work Birdy, Phil, Wesley, Quentin, George and Bob!
