Anyone interested in becoming a community ranger are invited to sign up with the Undalup Association at their enrollment day this Saturday from 1pm at the Youth and Community Centre.
Anyone can join the program and attend workshops during the school holidays to learn about data entry, caring for wildlife, first aid and local culture and traditions.
Special guest Ngurrawaana ranger Jessica Woodley Allen will be at the enrollment day, visiting the region from the Pilbara’s Yindjibarndi country, from a community called Ngurrawaana.
Ms Woodley Allen is the only female ranger in WA whose passions are being on country and capturing mother nature’s beauty through the lens of her camera.
She will display some photos from her country and talk about the importance of staying connected to country through everything we do.
Undalup Association chairperson Iszaac Webb said it was a great opportunity for Ms Woodley Allen to visit Wadandi Boodja and show her the South West.
“It is such a different landscape compared to where Jess lives - we have tall trees down here - and it is extra special to have Jess as our special guest on enrollment day,” he said.
