About the organisation
The Karrkad Kanjdji Trust (KKT) works to protect, restore and enhance the unique natural environment of West and Central Arnhem Land, NT. KKT acts as the philanthropic fundraising arm of the region’s Indigenous ranger groups, partnering with on-ground land management organisations to realise this mission.
KKT was established by Traditional Owners of the Warddeken and Djelk Indigenous Protected Areas in 2010. Our name, Karrkad Kanjdji (pronounced gar-gut gun-jee), refers to the stone country highlands and savanna lowlands of Arnhem Land, that we work together to protect.
Today, KKT is working with four Indigenous ranger groups, who manage over 50,000 square kilometres of Country. Our approach to conservation is holistic - each project we support strengthens the ability of communities to manage their natural and cultural assets. Our projects span six key focus areas: native biodiversity, bi-cultural education, women’s employment, cultural heritage, community sustainability and climate change.
