HAMILTON Hill resident Kyron Dvorak is among the graduates of a significant Aboriginal Conservation Training program that is part of the Federal Government’s goal to halve a gap in employment within a decade.
Last week, he was in the Karijini Nation Park with a group of volunteers to help rangers maintain tracks and trails.
Three participants recently graduated from a 12-week program involving visits to culturally significant sites like Lake Richmond in Rockingham.
Conservation Volunteers Australia team leader Hannah Gulliver said the program was designed to upskill and expand employment pathways for participants.
“It has been a rewarding experience leading this team of passionate and motivated individuals and I look forward to seeing where they go next,” she said.
To date, the Chevron Aboriginal Conservation Training Program has produced 35 graduates.
