The Bush Ranger Cadets from Broome Senior recently spent a week up the Dampier Peninsular engaging with culture, environment and fellow cadets.

Thanks to a small contribution from The Shire of Broome the Bush Ranger Cadets spent 3 nights camping at Bindukk with Brian Bin Saaban (Bran Nue Dae, Kriol Kitchen) before finishing the week long adventure at Pender Bay (Whale Song Cafe and Campgrounds). 

Cadets learnt to navigate using compasses and stars, survival skills such as tying knots, “leave no trace” principles of environmental camping and completed bio-diversity surveys in the area. Due to the generous loan of camera traps from Environs Kimberley, cadets photographed Dingoes in the night and incredible footage of Bower Bird mating rituals. 

The camp focused on team building, inclusivity and developing conservation land management skills. 

Broome Senior High School and Bush Ranger Cadets WA were proud to partner with Life Without Barriers to ensure that the camp was accessed by cadets and volunteers with disabilities and were lucky enough to have extremely knowledgeable and welcoming hosts.
