The Australian desert is the one of the largest and most environmentally and culturally connected areas on the planet.

Indigenous people living in the desert are connected to each other by country, culture, kinship and a shared responsibility to look after the desert and to teach future generations of Australians to do the same. The Indigenous Desert Alliance plays a vital role in securing the future health of the desert and its people by strengthening the existing connections between desert people, empowering desert people to look after their country and by connecting the desert story with the story of our country.

The IDA is committed to supporting Indigenous land managers and rangers working on desert country by,

  • Enabling rangers to speak with one strong voice for the desert

  • Supporting capacity building for desert ranger teams

  • Enhancing regional project collaboration

  • Inspiring other desert groups to create strong ranger teams
