Environment spokesperson, ACT Greens
The gang- gang should
Rattenbury, Greens Environment spokesperson, has called on the Government to
retain the famous gang-gang logo for parks rangers in the ACT, and also
give immediate consideration to integrating parks rangers back into the new
Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate.
Government logos, including the gang-gang are under review and could be
culled as part of a major restructure being undertaken, in response to the Hawke
think that the gang-gang logo is one logo that should stay with our parks
rangers ? it is not only our official fauna emblem, it?s a logo that has been
used by the service for the past 30 years,? Mr Rattenbury
the ACT and around Australia know and understand what that logo represents, and
it makes our specialised parks rangers easily identifiable in the
effectively as ?one public service? is not about unnecessary rebadging rangers
and repainting vehicles ? what?s more important is the way our public service is
have written to the Government to ask them to take the opportunity of the
restructure to move parks rangers, and pest and weed managers, back into the new
Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate where they naturally
service has been under increasing pressure in recent years to do more with less,
and staff morale is low. Removing the logo, and leaving parks rangers stranded
in TAMS isn?t going to make the situation any better.?
talking about expert biodiversity managers who are currently working in a
different department to the people who write biodiversity policy ? Environment
department would seem the natural fit.
Government has a great opportunity here to build a team that can deliver
integrated natural resource management, something the ACT desperately needs,?
said Mr Rattenbury.
