Karrkad Kanjdji Trust supports Indigenous people to protect, restore and enhance the natural environment of West and Central Arnhem Land.
Karrkad and Kanjdji refers to the stone country highlands and the savanna lowlands of Warddeken and Djelk – two million hectares of iconic land and sea country stretching from the eastern boundary of Kakadu National Park to the Arafura Sea.
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.
Food manufacturer Simplot Australia is funding fortnightly air charter deliveries of food and supplies into the remote outstations of Kabulwarnamyo and Manmoyi, enabling Indigenous rangers to be based in the communities all year round.
