“We the Uunguu Rangers come from Wunambal Gaambera Country. Our country has been the home of the Wunambal and Gaamgera people for many thousands of years and comes from the one Wanjina Wunggurr culture. Like our ancestors, we call our country “Uunguu” – our living home. From this came our group, the Uunguu Rangers. We are based in Kalumburu, in the Far North Kimberley - arguably the most remote Aboringinal Community in Australia. As rangers, we have a mammoth task monitoring and maintaining all aspects of conservation, tourism and land and sea management across 2.5 million hectares of land and sea country. To us, the most important aspect of our work, is to make sure we look after and protect our unique culture as well as the natural assets and values of our country. We need to keep our country healthy and our culture and knowledge alive and strong, so we can pass it on to future generations to enjoy and look after.”
