A busy week was had last week with the rangers from the Arafura Swamp as part of the Bush Heritage partnership with Arafura Swamp Rangers Aboriginal Corporation​ (ASRAC).

In particular the Wanga Djakamirr Rangers, who are the sea rangers for much of the coastline around the swamp, undertook their first patrol for many years checking turtles and marine debris on the beaches of Howard and Banyan Island.

They also checked sacred sites and fishing in the Glyde and Woolen Rivers.

A few days later a stray fishing net was found in the Glyde River full of dead fish, not common thankfully, but highlighting the importance of regular patrols.
