Trainee Ranger of the Year - Lionel Marr (Bunuba country)

Our Way

Added by RangerTube

The future of WA’s national parks is in safe hands.

Meet Lionel Marr, a proud Bunuba man, who always felt a calling to return from the city back to his childhood home of Fitzroy Crossing.
He wanted to know more about his country, his people and his culture and became a trainee ranger with the Parks and Wildlife Service, earning a coxswain skippers ticket.

Lionel’s efforts during the Kimberley floods of January 2023, despite losing his family home, and his commitment to his job, earned him special recognition.

At a recent ceremony in Perth, Lionel was presented with a trainee ranger graduate of the year award by Environment Minister Reece Whitby and DBCA Director General Stuart Smith.
