NLC Caring for Country Unit Written Submissions Cane Toad Inquiry Report Volume 2 68 ABORIGINAL COMMUNITY LAND AND SEA MANAGEMENT GROUPS - JULY 2002 Some groups are well established, while other groups are needing more support and resources. By resourcing Aboriginal ranger groups in remote areas the government would be assured of an environmental safe guard to watch over country and report outbreaks of plants or animals that do not belong. Early detection and subsequent eradication of introduced species is particularly important in the sparsely populated areas of northern Australia. The involvement of Dhimurru rangers in controlling crazy ants in north east Arnhem Land is an example of a control program that is tackling a potentially disastrous pest before it spreads.
