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.
