The Torres Strait Regional Authority (TSRA) Ranger staff participated in a Family Fun day at the ANZAC memorial park last month, raising community awareness about the importance of the Ranger program in the Torres Strait.

The day was planned as a part of the Certificate IV Leadership and Management course that has been undertaken by Ranger Staff at TAFE to prepare them for team leadership and management roles in a wide range of organisational and industry contexts.

TSRA Chairperson, Mr Pedro Napau Stephen AM, said that this project was a wonderful opportunity for the rangers to get involved with the community.

“The day in the park was a great success, with all of the Rangers gaining great skills in planning, monitoring, implementing and closing a project,” he said.

“It has given them invaluable experience, that will enable them to be future leaders in their communities.”

The Rangers delivered exhibitions from the wide range of areas that they cover, including land and sea management, traditional ecological knowledge recording, Indigenous Protected Area management and marine operations.

The community was involved in activities such as knot tying classes and a colouring in competition with prizes and giveaways.

The Rangers also collected valuable community feedback through a survey, which will assist in developing ideas for future projects.

The TSRA Rangers would like to say a big Esso to the Blue Light Association and other relevant stakeholders for their very kind support and making the day such a great success.
