As Darwin locals, we take great pride in working with the community to make our shared home a better place by investing in our people, in our community and taking every opportunity to develop the local economy.
Two weeks ago, a diverse group of young people from around the Darwin, Palmerston, Belyuen and Wagait Beach regions attended a school holiday cultural camp and learned all about the work undertaken by the Kenbi Rangers on country.
This opportunity was made possible by the Kenbi Ranger Group as part of their ongoing commitment to engaging with the community they live and work in. These interactive workshops equipped these young people with vital skills and knowledge they will need in the future should they choose a career pathway as a Ranger. A trip was organised for the excited youngsters out to Bare Sand Island aboard Sea Darwin where they met with Researchers and got to hold baby turtles and look for turtle eggs on the fresh tracks on the beach. On the boat ride home, the kids came up close to some dolphins playing in the harbour and pulled up alongside a Submarine that was berthed in Darwin Harbour with workers aboard giving the kids a friendly wave.
On Day 2, workshops were held with Parks and Wildlife, NT Fisheries, INSPIREDNT, Charles Darwin University, the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, Larrakia Nation Aboriginal Corporation Rangers and the Lee Family.
A great time was held by all that attended.
