CDU/AIATSIS seminar 

Daniel Oades

Daniel Oades presents ‘The Turtle and Dugong Project and the Bardi-Jawi Rangers’, on Monday 12 March from 12pm to 1.30pm.

In his seminar, Daniel will describe the work done through a series of case studies examining the development of Rangers alongside evaluation, monitoring and the development of culturally appropriate models of management of saltwater country, as well as examining the relevance of Indigenous community engagement from the ground up as an essential element of any successful program aimed at caring for country.

Daniel started the role of Turtle and Dugong Project Officer mid June 2006 on a secondment to the Land and Sea Management Unit of the Kimberley Land Council, from the Department of Environment and Conservation, WA.

He worked for three years as a Marine Ranger in the Exmouth District on the Ningaloo Reef Marine Park and Cape Range National Park. His role covered a diverse range of activities, gaining experience in land and sea management, on ground implementation of new management plans, inter-agency work, and community and indigenous liaison.

In his role as project officer Daniel has been able to work with his own mob and set up the Bardi Jawi Ranger Program and initiate works programs for the rangers according to the project Regional Activity Plan (RAP).
