Island Way, Desert Way - Kiwirrkurra and li-Anthawirriyarra Rangers share cat management knowledge

Tue, 12 Oct 2021

In July 2021 the Kiwirrkurra rangers drove 2000km across from the Gibson Desert (WA) to the Gulf of Carpentaria (NT) to meet with the li-Anthawirriyarra sea rangers. This exchange was sponsored by the Indigenous Desert Alliance and enabled the two ranger groups to exchange knowledge about their cat management techniques and learn more about each other’s culture.

The li-Anthawirriyarra sea rangers were proud to show Mumathumburu (West Island) to the Kiwirrkurra rangers and how they conducted small mammal surveys and deployed Felixer traps as well as introducing them to a range of new bush tucker items!
