    Katajarra (the Carnarvon Ranges) and Mungkulu in the Calvert Ranges lie within the Birriliburu native title determined area and are part of the Birriliburu Indigenous Protected Area.

    Birriliburu Traditional Owners have identified this country as 'empty' - with a long absence of Traditional Owners and lack of infrastructure on country to support them looking after it.

    This project will establish two ranger camps - one in Yamada in the Northern part of Katjarra, the other in Munkulu in the Calvert Ranges. The camps will provide shelter, water and environmentally friendly ablution facilities.

    Regular and reliable water sources and shelter will enable Traditional Owners and ranger teams to conduct work that requires long stays on country including:

    • patch burning to protect important habitat and sites
    • surveys and monitoring of threatened species (such as mulgara, marsupial moles, black-flanked rock wallaby)
    • feral animal and weed control (particularly cats and foxes)
    • monitoring and management of visitors.
    Investment: $ 50 000
    Delivery organisation: Track Care WA Inc
    Project duration: February 2013 - October 2015
    Location: Katjarra (Carnarvon Ranges) and Mungkulu in the Calvert Ranges both within the Birriliburu Native Title Determination lands and Indigenous Protected Area.
