The Karrkad Kanjdji Trust works with Indigenous ranger groups in one of the most culturally rich and biodiverse regions of Australia – West and Central Arnhem Land. Rangers and philanthropists have formed an alliance to address some of the region's most pressing issues, including environmental conservation, education and employment. Our projects are both unique and respectful, in that each piece of work we partner on is 100 per cent community driven, from concept to implementation.
The Warddeken Indigenous Protected Area encompasses what may be the largest undocumented body of rock art in the world. Less than 5% of the 1.4 million hectare IPA has been surveyed and it is estimated that there are more than 30,000 undocumented individual rock art sites.
The project was launched in July 2016 after the Warddeken Traditional Owners requested more roles and opportunities for women. With the appointment of a dedicated Women’s Ranger Coordinator this has become a reality. Women now make up 50% of the rangers at two of the bases.
