“I believe that the reef is extremely important to us and my people. It’s been such a major food source for generations and generations, and I believe that’s why I am here today as a ranger, to help look after the reef and restore it for the kids after me, and their kids and their kids. I think it’s definitely our generation who needs to stand up and do something at this time. The reef is definitely not getting any better, but this is what we’re here for, and as a ranger, I feel like I do my part, so yeah, I am very happy where I can help.”

“Well, the Gunggandji rangers and the TUMRA coordinator, well the first thing we can bring along to the table is over 200,000 years’ worth of knowledge, experience and sustainability, to help our future generations and not only ourselves, it also gives knowledge sharing to GBRMPA, GBR Biology, Reef Magic, and I guess we’re also giving and sharing a gift to the planet.”
