From an early age, Cody Millar’s dream job was to be a sea ranger, just like his father and grandfather before him.

So he stayed in school and now he’s living the dream working with the li-Anthawirriyarra Sea Ranger Unit, protecting and managing the sea country around the Sir Edward Pellow Group of Islands in the Northern Territory.

Listen to Cody talk about his dream to become a sea ranger and watch the important work he is doing on his land and sea.

The Australian Government supports ranger units through the Working on Country program which recognises that protecting and conserving the environment is a shared responsibility that also provides sustainable employment for Indigenous people.

The li-Anthawirriyarra [People of the Sea or Saltwater People] live in and around Borroloola and the Sir Edward Pellew Islands in the southwest Gulf of Carpentaria.
