The Greens’ Shane Rattenbury is letting us know that the Greens want the ACT’s park rangers to retain their gang-gang logo following this morning’s news that the ACT wants to fold the service into a general ACT Government branding:
“The Greens 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 said.
“People in the ACT and around Australia know and understand what that logo represents, and it makes our specialised parks rangers easily identifiable in the community.
“Working more 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 organised.
The Greens 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 belong.
“Our parks 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.”
