In partnership with Kakadu National Park, the Werenbun Aboriginal Corporation, based at Wirnwirnmila near the Park's border, is supported through Working on Country to employ Aborignal people who wish to work in a national park environment. The program engages Aboriginal participants in ranger training and in implementing the Park's operations as set out under the Kakadu Plan of Management.
The Kakadu Indigenous Ranger Program is a partnership between the Warnbi Aboriginal Corporation based at Jabiru, Northern Territory and Kakadu National Park. Covering nearly 20,000 square kilometres of exceptional natural beauty and unique biodiversity, Kakadu is one of very few places World Heritage listed for both its cultural and its natural values. Kakadu National Park is managed jointly by its Aboriginal traditional owners and the Director of National Parks.
The goal of land rehabilitation following mining in environmentally sensitive areas is often ecosystem restoration, rather than simply revegetation. This is the case at Ranger uranium mine (RUM) in the Alligator Rivers Region of Australia's Northern Territory. Effective methods of monitoring ecological restoration are therefore required. Ants have frequently been used as indicators of restoration success following mining in northern Australia, but the extent to which ants actually provide a reliable indication of ecological change has been poorly documented.
