Ngopamuldi Aboriginal Corporation’s mission is to alleviate disadvantage among the local Aboriginal and broader community. This involves providing community development services, support, and employment and training opportunities. The Working on Country program employs Indigenous Rangers and Coordinators to undertake environmental activities in the Lower River Murray, Lakes and Coorong region.

Activities include maintenance of a native plant nursery, rehabilitation of wetlands, habitat restoration, monitoring and protection of threatened plant and animal species, weed and pest control and cultural site protection. The Raukkan Aboriginal Learning On Country program provides employment and training to Aboriginal community members.

The NAC team has a diverse skillset, gained through formal qualifications and training. More than half of the 46 strong workforce is engaged in training and skills development, and all staff are encouraged to update and add to their qualifications.
