“We are the Paruku IPA Rangers. We work with our elders to get their knowledge so we can pass it down to the younger generations, so they know their land and culture. We are from the Walmajarri tribe and our old people taught us that by keeping our stories alive, we keep our country alive. Our main job is to look after Lake Gregory (Paruku), which is at the centre of our Indigenous Protected Area. The lake is our life; it keeps our country alive and strong. This place, our home, has monsoon rains in the wet season, attracting birds from all around the world. We are based in the Great Sandy Desert and in the hot, dry season, the lake is our sanctuary. This is a special place and we ask you to respect our country the way we respect it.”
